Glastenbury Mountain Wilderness

Glastenbury Mountain Wilderness Professional Review and Guide

"Deep in the southern Green Mountains, 3,748-foot Glastenbury
Mountain rises above a vast sea of uninterrupted woodland. A fire
tower crowns the summit, offering 360-degree views over some of
Vermont’s wildest terrain. Miles of easy-cruising solitude surround
it. But to reach the peak, you’ve got to earn it."

This is a tough hike and the bugs are very annoying. On the plus side, it's very quiet and not heavily trafficked so if you enjoy solitude you'll like it (except for the company of bugs). Other than at the fire tower on top of Glastenbury the views are ok but nothing exciting. It's worth doing once but I don't think I would do it again.

Nice Loop with plenty of tent sites along the AT/ long trail. It would be very nice during clear weather. When rainy, you're in the clouds and not much to see. The guide tip to do two nights is a good one, getting up the initial elevation from route 9 the first day, In bad weather the Goddard shelter fills quickly so it would be wise to get in early. Definately a worth while hike. the trail guide is very accurate.
