#11 of 138 mountain bike trails in Vermont
It is a Mountain so lots of climbing, but the downhills make it worth it. The trails are well marked.

There is a large parking area near the old Ascutney Mountain Ski lodge. There is also a Holiday Inn at the base. Just use Ski Tow Rd or Hotel Rd, Brownsville,VT in the GPS. From there pickup last mile or home again trails.

Wow. I just rode Ascutney trails during a two-day mind bender trip that included Okemo and Woodstock ,Vermont.Thank |
But I really liked Ascutney trails.
First I rode the ski tow side which was decent.Then I decided to check out the town forest side on coaching lane...Holy crap those are some nice trails...rock gardens galore, techy death sections(where the trail hugs a steep fall line) and smooth flowy runs make Ascutney a diamond in the rough in Central Vermont.
If you come up here make sure you try the Harpoon tasting room nearby in Windsor.
Rode the intermediate trails during the VBMA Festival and had a great time.Thank |
There's something for everyone here. A fair amount of easy, and intermediate. Additionally, probably 30% or so is expert. Lots of fun, well marked trails. Spend the $8 and buy a map. Trails were well maintained and easily find trailhead parking. If you're in the area, give'em a spin, you'll be happy you did.Thank |
Favorite in the area! Something for everyone. Seems like you are always going up, but there are great downhill sections.Thank |
Great climbs and downs, challenging yet very rewarding....Thank |
