Summits most major peaks in Vermont, including all 5 4000 ft peaks in the state. Southern Vermont has some nice peaks with views such as Stratton and Glastenbury which have fire towers. The LT coincides with that Appalachian trail from the MA border to Rutland (about 105mi). Killington mt is the tallest peak in the south and offers great views from its rocky summit. Northern Vermont has more notable peaks with great views. The trail is also harder to follow due to less frequent blazing compared to the south where the LT and the AT follow each other. The most fun part imo is from lincoln gap to Jonhson Vt. This part includes Camels hump and Mansfield which make great day and multi day hikes. Beyond Johnson the trail gets remote and narrow. Jay Peak is also a great day hike.
