Updates & News

Summer is heaven in Vermont.  All of our trails are open for walking and hiking and biking.  Late summer also showcases several large events on the mountain, notably the Vermont 50, the Ragnar team trail race, and the Vermont Overland.  Even if you’re not a participant, it’s fun to come by and see the show.

With all of these goings on, it’s timely that we just completed the community Brochure which explains and encourages trail etiquette, respect of private property, and riding around town.  Please take a look!  The brochure was a result of our Recreational Activities Survey.


We were so pleased that many events are returning to the mountain this past summer.  For a list of coming events, please see our Events Calendar.



What We Do

Ascutney Outdoors offers a remarkable four-season venue for outdoor activities and nature lovers within the beautiful and diverse ecosystem of Mount Ascutney.

Four Season Recreation



  • Hiking on some of the most scenic trails in Vermont
  • Mountain biking on 35+ miles of trails maintained by our sister organization Ascutney Trails Association
  • Equestrian trails around the base of our mountain

Community & Events


Ascutney Outdoors was created to bring the community together to enjoy our mountain. Our organization, trails, and activities are made possible by a dynamic group of volunteers–and we’re always looking for socially distant new recruits!


When it’s safe to gather again, the Ascutney Outdoors Center is the ideal place for large and small activities and events.
