Route: Vermont 4000ers (VT)

Vermont, US
118.6 mi

There are 5 peaks in Vermont over 4000 feet: Mount Mansfield, Camel's Hump, Mount Abraham, Mount Ellen, and Killington Peak. They are all easily accessible from roads.  We have 2 variations:  "just the peaks" (i.e., driving between the THs), and "peaks & connections" (including human powered travel between the THs).  Our map shows Peter Howe's track connecting all the peaks by bike.

On 9/21/2020 (this Monday), I will go for the self-supported, peaks and connections route. My plan is to start early at Killingtons base and end at sunset on top of Mansfield.

I ran the Vermont 4000-footers (just the peaks) self-supported in 9:25:47 today. I started at 7:15 a.m. at the Bucklin trailhead and finished at 4:41 p.m. on the summit of Ellen. Full details tomorrow when I have computer access. Great day to be out in the mountains!
