Ascutney State Park

Search Windsor Vermont

The peak of Mount Ascutney is over 3,000 feet and is surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of state park lands. Excellent viewing is offered from points along the summit road and trail.

Camping is permitted at park campgrounds only and in lean-tos along trails at the foot of the mountain. There is a small picnic area at the foot of the summit, and a picnic area and shelter part way up the summit road.

The mountain is a favorite launching pad for hang gliders, who take off from a south peak site. Biking is permitted only on paved and dirt park roads.
