Glastenbury Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Established in 2006, the 22,425-acre Glastenbury Wilderness highlights one of Vermont’s remotest areas. Its namesake mountain, while not in the wilderness, provides sweeping 360- degreeviews from its 1927-built fire tower. Located more than 10 miles from the nearest road via modestly inclined trails, Glastenbury Mountain is an ideal backpacking destination. This circuit includes the well-trodden Long/Appalachian Trail corridor, as well as a far more rustic path over the mountain’s West Ridge. While lacking dramatic scenery, the hike lures those seeking a quietness most likely interrupted by an unsuspecting wild creature around the next bend."
