Summer Outdoor Recreation

Summer/Fall Outdoor Recreation

We may be famous for our snowy winters in Vermont, but once you experience summer, it may become your favorite season! The opportunities are endless, with plenty of nearby canoe, kayak & boat rentals, swimming holes, river tubing & waterfalls to explore, and enough hiking to make sure even the most die-hard adventurer doesn't cross the same peak twice. In Killington, you can enjoy scenic gondola rides through the mountains, beginner and advanced mountain biking, and golf at either (or both!) of our two spectacular mountain courses.

Families may enjoy old-fashioned carriage & wagon rides, or exploring some of the nearby agricultural farms. Fishing is always a popular way to spend a lazy Saturday, and for the more adventurous there is horseback riding or hot air balooning!

Swimming Pools are also nearby in Killington, with movies and events for the kids while parents can relax in the sun and enjoy the free Wi-Fi. Contact the Rec Department for more information on pool opening, hours and pricing.
