News & Updates

From small gatherings to popular large community and recreational events, the mountain is alive.  Please see our Events Calendar  for more information.  The trails are in great shape too, so come on out for a stroll or hike or bike ride, or just take in the view from the Ascutney Outdoors Center.  

We’re also getting closer to completing the Ascutney  Discovery Trail and are hoping for a late summer opening and celebration.  Until then, here’s a teaser of one of the panels. 

As an aside, please consider adding Ascutney Outdoors as your designated charity at AmazonSmile.  It’s easy to set up with your regular Amazon account and they donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases.


After a long year of hibernation, we are so pleased that many events are returning to the mountain this summer.  

For a full list of 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.
