“The Bucklin Trail is a gorgeous, wooded trail that climbs the west face of Killington Mountain.”— Simeon Pol
Around the first mile, the grade will begin to increase gradually, preparing you for the remainder of the hike, which will continue to get steeper.
At around the second mile, the trail becomes much steeper and will remain this way for the duration of the hike.
At 0.5 miles from the peak, you'll encounter a spring where you can refill your water bottles and Cooper's Lodge shelter.
The remaining 0.5 miles is a steep rocky set of switchbacks that lead up the backside of Killington Mountain to the peak.
