Hike Mount Ascutney

5.2 Miles Total - 2326 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

A wonderful hike to the summit of Mount Ascutney near Perkinsville, Vermont.

This route to the top of Mount Ascutney is completed via the Weathersfield Trail. This trail goes past gorgeous Cascade Falls - often frozen in the winter months. There is a great spot to eat lunch at the top of Mount Ascutney to the side of the hang glider landing. While the summit itself does not offer stunning views, Gus’ Lookout is great for taking in the surrounding landscapes!
