After a brief stop over in Killington, we took a walk up to Thundering Falls Trail. It was a short and easy hike to a beautiful falls. Be sure to wear bug spray as the mosquitos were overwhelming.

The Appalachian mts are the beautiful green mountains in Vermont. You can hike the thundering falls for an easy detour to enjoy nature. They are small falls.

7 of us, ages 3-70, thoroughly enjoyed this short walk. We started watching crayfish and minnows in the stream next to the small parking lot. Enjoyed the marsh wildflowers from the boardwalk. Despite the drought, there was water in the falls. I bet it's better...More
