Bennington has hiking available at the Bruce Edes Forest, Crotched Mountain and the Rail Trail

In addition there is access to two lakes for swimming, fishing and boating (Powder Mill Pond and Whittemore Lake which is only available for residents of Bennington), and the Contoocook River.  There are two Cemeteries that can be explored in Bennington.

There are no admission charges for any of these Special Places, they are open to residents and visitors (except Whittemore Lake) so please check on the location you might want to try.
