There are two ways to do this loop: one is to begin at Bald Mountain’s trailhead in Bennington and following the West Ridge Trail to Glastenbury. Or to begin at the Bald Mountain Trail in Woodford. Beginning in Bennington had access to Bald Mountain’s outlook. When you begin from the Woodford side, there is not an outlook point until you reach the summit. The summit of Bald Mountain is the intersection of these two trails with the West Ridge Trail, but the views are hard to see over the treetops. The West Ridge Trail has thick overgrowth compared to the LT, but it’s still accessible.
