The trail is mostly wooden planks with a packed soil near the falls area. It's maybe 1/4 mi. The falls were LOUD and impressive.

This little hike is a must do, it is easy but very beautiful. Short walk from gravel parking area. Once you get to the waterfall you can hike up to the top. That part is much more difficult.

Thundering Falls is located on River Road in Killington, VT. Visitors use a boardwalk to traverse wetlands and then reach the Application Mountain Trail. The air becomes cooler as you approach the falls. This site is a beautiful year round attraction.
