HIGHLIGHTS: The Appalachian Trail climbs from the suspension bridge at Clarendon Gorge over VT 103 and up 3000 feet to Killington Peak. The state was named “Verd-mont” here by a Frenchman in the 1700’s, and the summit is off a side trail to the right at 4,235 feet. The views from here are spectacular, and the states of Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Maine and even Canada are visible on a clear day. A chair lift runs daily to Killington Peak in the summer.
