K-1 Express Gondola Rides and Hiking

Leave the fast pace of everyday life behind with a relaxing mile and a quarter ride up the K-1 Express Gondola to the top of 4,241-foot Killington Peak. Nestled in the thick of central Vermont's Green Mountains, Killington Peak serves as a trailhead for 45 miles of mountain biking and 15 miles of designated hiking trails for adventure seekers, complete with mountain views stretching for miles across surrounding states.

For those with a more leisurely attitude in mind, Killington Peak is an ideal spot for a picnic, Peak Walk or to simply sit and enjoy the fresh, Green Mountain air. During fall foliage, the K-1 Express Gondola offers a top-of-the-world view of Vermont’s annual display of nature’s fireworks. In addition, Killington is a frequent stop for long-distance hikers navigating their way along the well-known Appalachian and Long Trails, which run through Killington’s peaks.

K-1 Express Gondola tickets are available for purchase in the Mountain Bike Shop in the K-1 Lodge.
