Benton, NH


Benton: This town hosts a substantial segment of the AT, including Mt. Moosilauke’s summit. The AT follows Long Pond Rd. and High St. for about a half-mile just outside of the village of Glencliff (in Warren), and also both trailheads for Tunnel Brook Trail are in Benton. That trail connects with Benton Trail which reaches the AT near Moosilauke’s summit.

Benton has very few services. A church and an auto repair place are located on NH Rte. 118. The Forest Service at one time maintained a picnic area on Long Pond, but both ends of that road have recently been barricaded.

Did you know? For northbounders, Mt. Moosilauke is the first summit above tree line on the AT.
