HIGHLIGHTS: From VT 9 near the town of Bennington, The Appalachian Trail climbs past the Goddard, Caughnawaga, Kid Gore, and Story Spring Shelters and reaches a fire tower at Stratton Mountain. Benton MacKaye, who first published a proposal for the creation of the Appalachian Trail, is thought to have come up with the idea during a hike on this mountain. A cabin with a summer caretaker is near the summit for overnight use, and a side trail leads a short distance to the Stratton Ski Area where a gondola provides access to the base of the mountain.
