Ascutney Outdoors offers a remarkable four-season venue for outdoor activities and nature lovers within the beautiful and diverse ecosystem of Mount Ascutney.  Community members and visitors enjoy public access to trails, forests and fields for walking and hiking, mountain biking, trail running, alpine skiing and snow tubing, and back-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The Ascutney Outdoors Center is the gathering place for all of our activities and events, both large and small. It offers diverse programs for the community, educational groups, and cultural programs. We hope you enjoy learning more about Ascutney Outdoors and all we have to offer.  As you do, we’d like you to know that we rely on scores of volunteers to help run our operation and keep our operation sustainable – please say thanks when you see them.   

We look forward to seeing you on the mountain soon!

Trail Closure during Deer Hunting Season:

Please note that the trails will be closed to biking from November 14th through December 15th.  The trails remain open for hiking, but exercise caution and wear orange so that you (or your pet) are not mistaken for quarry.  Please be considerate of the hunters and avoid trail use in the early morning and late afternoon, when the deer are most active.
