Pownal, VT


Pownal: Only a short segment of the AT goes through Pownal, and there are no crossings there. The trailhead for Broad Brook Trail is located on White Oaks Rd. in Pownal; however, this road can only be accessed from the south through Williamstown. Numerous businesses are located along US Rte. 7 including several convenience stores (some with deli counters) and a motel.

The Pownal Valley Fair is held on the last Saturday in July. In addition to US Rte. 7, which connects Williamstown to the south with Bennington to the north, Pownal is also where VT Rte. 346 provides a way to get to Petersburgh in New York.
