Bennington vermont

beckons to certain people with its quiet mountain lake, secluded hiking trails, and beautiful waterfront campsites.

Woodford state Park

The Old First Church is the first gathered church in Vermont. Although the church that stands there now isn’t the original, it’s been around since 1805.

At 306 feet, the Bennington Monument is the tallest building in the state. It commemorates the Battle of Bennington, which took place on August 16, 1777.

While visiting this literary landmark, be sure to walk the grounds, and perhaps the beautiful nature trail that starts behind the barn and heads out to Lake Paran in North Bennington.

It’s usually warm enough to swim in the shallow lake until late September, and the one-mile trail around the lake is the perfect little adventure for restless dogs and their human companions.

The famous long-distance trail runs across route 9 between Bennington and Woodford, and there’s a parking area right off the road for hikers. The Appalachian Trail runs north and south, but you''ll get a better view hiking south from route 9.
