Bennington, VT


Bennington: Given its proximity to the AT and the number of services that it has to offer, Bennington is a major trail town on the AT (even though the trail doesn’t actually go through it). Bennington is most easily reached from the VT Rte. 9 crossing of the AT in Woodford. Regional bus service between Wilmington and Bennington will stop at that crossing. Downtown Bennington has numerous restaurants and several motels. Bennington’s downtown is very active, and there are a couple of shopping malls north of downtown.

Bennington is best known as the home to Bennington College, one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country, and also the site of the prominent Bennington Battlefield Monument, a stone obelisk reminiscent of the Washington Monument (located here despite the fact the actual battle took place across the border in New York). The town hosts numerous activities, events, museums and performing arts groups. If you want to find or do something, you’ll probably be able to in Bennington.

Did you know? Bennington Battle Monument is the tallest man-made structure in Vermont.
