Where can I get a trail map to hike, ski, snowshoe or ride at Mt Ascutney? For those wanting to hike to the summit of Mt Ascutney, trail information can be found online at Ascutney Trails Association or Vermont State Parks. These trails are for foot traffic only. There is a separate network of about 30 miles of trails for non-motorized recreational use, located at the base and western flank of Mt. Ascutney, mostly on the land of the Ascutney Mountain Resort and the town forest of West Windsor Vermont. The trails are open to the public at no cost with an extensive sign system, and maps are sold at The Climb Fitness Center, Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Ascutney Mountain Resort and local bike shops.
Where can I find more information about just mountain biking? www.stabvt.org Sport Trails of the Ascutney Basin (STAB) is an association of volunteers, dedicated to local trails for foot-powered recreation. In the area towns, there are many miles of private trails built by, maintained by and shared among members. STAB also built and maintains a network of public trails at the base of Mt. Ascutney - at the Ascutney Mountain Resort and at the Mt. Ascutney State Park. (These multi-use trails, along with hiking-only trails to the summit are open to the public, free of charge, as Ascutney Trails).
Can I still back-country ski on Mt Ascutney now that the Rope Tow is open? Absolutely!!!! We encourage everyone to enjoy the awesome back-country terrain that the mountain has to offer. We are actively working to clear some of the ski trails for back-country skiing and riding.
