A gorgeous wooded hike in Bennington. I would rate this as moderate to moderate-hard. The trail is wide and mostly well marked. However, there are multiple locations where the nearby creek crosses the trail resulting in very slick conditions. The final third of the trail is very steep. From reviews on here, we decide to turn around at the Bennington overlook instead of completing the trail at the Summit.

If you're used to the nearby Adirondacks, don't waste your time on this one unless it's a nice, sunny day, or you love Bennington. The trail is poorly marked, and the only view you get is of Bennington. The summit offers no views worth remembering. The trail itself is okay once you get about a third of the way in. Nothing to write home about.

Tough towards the top, but well worth it!

Well marked trail with a steep incline in the beginning, strenous but not too hard. Great views and dog approved! Good trail for a dog used to trails and has some listening skills and is conditioned a little.

I hiked here as part of a 65 mile section of the Long Trail I was doing. The hike is was fairly difficult with a lot of ups and downs. The top of Glastenbury has an old fire tower with amazing views in all directions. The shelter is a little ways downhill from the summit. I would recommend returning to the fire tower to watch the sunset after you set up camp.

This trail was pretty intense at the beginning. Lots of rocks and pretty steap but totally doable, just breathe and make it to the top! Once at the top it does clear out to a pretty clear with some areas of tall grass. The veiw of Bennington at the top was beautiful ♡
