View Connector Trails
Take Route 4 east from Rutland or west from Killington to the top of Sherburne Pass. A few parking spots on the north side/trailhead-side of Route 4 and many places on the south side. Be extremely careful crossing Route 4.
From the trailhead immediately alongside Route 4 at the top of Shrewsbury Pass, the trail ascends quickly alongside the road (some road noise can be heard in the initial portions of the trail). The trail curves up to a wooded summit and requires a brief ten-minute mild descent down to the rock cliff vista that is Deer's Leap. Exceptional views can be had generally to the south, very well worth the hour-long hike to the top.
