Ascent Trip Report

Did this with killington from bucklin trail. The majority of the hike over was on the level after an initial descent from the shoulder of killington. The ascent up from pico link wasnt bad at all, only about .4mi of ascent, somewhat blood pumping. I took the trail up and the grass road down. The views were great, not used to the developed peaks of vermont, i like the adirondacks better. Saw a section hiker hippy and his girl on the AT, he was nice and funny. There was a bottle of water left at jungle junction that was full, when i got back from pico someone drunk half of it. There are constant streams up there.
