God­dard Shel­ter (mile 9.1)

You don’t find many shel­ters this close to a moun­tain’s sum­mit in the North­east, which makes God­dard a treat. Drop your pack at the spa­cious lean-to (room for 10), then climb 10 min­utes to the fire tower on top of Glas­ten­bury to catch the sun­set. Re­turn to God­dard for so­cial hour on the front porch; ex­pect a thru-hiker mot­ley crew. The shel­ter is first-come, first-serve (free), and there are tent sites in either di­rec­tion, in­clud­ing one just be­low Glas­ten­bury’s sum­mit.
