I visited the mountain and it was the first time I was going to try skiing. There was a resort near where I was staying so we made the drive up the mountain. The kids went and got skiing lessons and continued to play on...More

This is a great hike, parts of it can be a bit arduous but the payoff is so worth it. Fantastic views on a clear day. You will feel rewarded by the effort you made to get to the top. Well worth every step taken.

We drove the Mt. Ascutney auto road, which is a nice journey up with one scenic pull off. Having read Trip Advisor reviews before we got there, I was satisfied with the views from the parking lot and didn’t feel the need to hike 7/10’s...More

We drove up the mountain road and then hiked the path from the parking lot at the top. Because we were hiking with our three small dogs this was the most feasible option. We opted to take the “slab” rather than “slot” trail and it...More

We found this walk while planning our 50th wedding Anniversary from the UK. Having already visited the Windsor/Cornish covered Bridge, we were please to find that from the Overlook halfway up, we could look down on that Bridge. The walk at the summit was well...More

Having driven by hundreds of times, I took advantage of the unusually mild February weather and checked out the top. This isn't a huge mountain, but is right on the edge of the CT River valley so it has views way off to the East,...More

For $8, you can drive up to the top of Mount Ascutney (not including the .7 mile hike to the summit). The drive was fun - nice "Vermont scenic" views (including the Windsor-Cornish covered bridge over the CT River) with a few overlooks for stopping....More

A wonderful vista. We didn't have time for a hike up, but there are plenty of options. We drove to a parking lot near the summit and hiked to to top (less than one mile) where the views were wonderful.

Enjoyable and challenging trails to hike. Hiking to the summit is worth the effort. Historical remnants of granite quarry can be found off the brownsville trail.

I've done all 3 over the years and it's a good workout hiking. The paved road was always deserted as we climbed it in Nov. The trail is a more direct, steeper climb, and driving is the most boring! Excellent views, wildflowers in early Spring...More

We were just there this past weekend and did the hike up to the summit with a whole gang of kids (the youngest to do her own hiking is 4), as well as a 7-months-pregnant lady. It was very doable for us, but there were lots... More
