Went mountain biking here with my brother. I couldn’t help but to keep stopping only to take pictures. The trails were tough (for me) not skill wise but aerobic wise. (I live in south Florida.). There’s a lot of uphill before you can enjoy the...More

Ascutney is a hidden jewel, great VT location, great MTB trails! Lots of challenge, but also enough to keep the novice wanting to come back for more. It would be good to see more in the way of promotion for this great spot, which would...More

We did a run up/around an old ski area, quiet and pretty even in the rain. Hiking trails abound, turkeys are in the fields and trails in the area allow mt biking. The area screams New England postcard which is exactly what we wanted.

This is a great hike, parts of it can be a bit arduous but the payoff is so worth it. Fantastic views on a clear day. You will feel rewarded by the effort you made to get to the top. Well worth every step taken.

We drove the Mt. Ascutney auto road, which is a nice journey up with one scenic pull off. Having read Trip Advisor reviews before we got there, I was satisfied with the views from the parking lot and didn’t feel the need to hike 7/10’s...More

We drove up the mountain road and then hiked the path from the parking lot at the top. Because we were hiking with our three small dogs this was the most feasible option. We opted to take the “slab” rather than “slot” trail and it...More

Having driven by hundreds of times, I took advantage of the unusually mild February weather and checked out the top. This isn't a huge mountain, but is right on the edge of the CT River valley so it has views way off to the East,...More
