Benton is largely surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest. The town is crossed by the Appalachian Trail. A prominent natural feature in Benton is Mount Moosilauke, a popular site for hikers. The 4802' Mount Moosilauke is located, at least partially, in Benton. Moosilauke has been climbed for nearly 300 years. The mountain has long been a hiking destination, source of timber and winter playground. The summit is bare and has wonderful 360 degree views of the rest of the Whites, Vermont, and even into the Adirondacks on a good day. Come enjoy the country living in Benton!
