Great Hike, It took me 2 1/2 up and 1 1/4 down in snowshoes both ways. It was snowing but calm and cold on the top. Enough for me to find the bench mark though.

The Long Trail to Glastenbury Mountain

a buddy and I did this in January 2014. We started at route 9 and snow shoed all the way in to the GOddard Shelter, and back out the next morning instead of the west ridge. It was EXTREMELY cold overnight with ambient temps below zero and wind chills around -30. In the morning we made our way up tto the top of the fire tower, then broke trail the whole way out. It was somewhat grueling and should not be taken lightly in the winter. Would have gotten five stars, except you don't get much in the way of views, and the AT blazes are very worn so trail finding in deep fresh snow can be interesting...

We took our 4 younger kids on this trail and loved it. There were some very muddy,slippery spots and I saw a few people fall. We just took our time and the view at the top was amazing.

Every step of this hike (literally at the beginning) is worth the view of stealing lake. The first time I went up there their was a layer of fog and mist over the lake as it was a rainy day. I felt like I was in another world. Not to far past the lake is a nice shelter where you might be able to catch a mountain care taker, or sit down and cook up some chow. Great escape away from the world

I've hiked this lovely trail on multiple occasions. In the summer months and in winter months. Rather difficult at the beginning. Once you break the alpine tree zone it levels out a little and isn't as difficult and becomes breathtaking. If your looking for a challenge if your an inexperienced hiker you've found your golden ticket.

Prospect Rock Trail

Correction- the trailhead is not on Bromley Brook road. Driving north go to the next road on the right; Rooteville Road. Park at the water tower and head up logging road. You could probably get to it from Bromley Brook but it is not marked. From Rooteville you will see a State Forest info board a little way in. The trail is all on the logging road so while it does ascend steadily it is easy walking and a beautiful rushing mountain stream runs alongside the trail. There is a short spur to the right partway up that leads to a fantastic overlook.
Really nice hike with spectacular views and it connects to the Appalachian Trail. Unless you wish to continue on the AT you'd turn around after reaching Prospect Rock and return the way you came.

There is no longer a tower on top of Bromley. There is still the outhouse & hut.

Great ride for a date! And it can be a sociable outing with others met along its length, or an open vista occasion for solo reflection.

One of the best hikes in Vermont if you're looking to spend a day at the mountain. If you get a real early start, views of the sunrise are breathtaking on a clear day. Pack warm clothes for the top because it's cold regardless of what time of the year it is
