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."

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.
