    Climbing the wrong way at Ascutney Trails?

    Climbing the wrong way at Ascutney Trails?-novice-route-1.jpg
    If you didnít have fun at Ascutney Trails, you must have gone the wrong way. And there are so many wrong ways. But we are working on sending you in the right direction. Above is a suggested novice loop. This and other suggested loops will be posted at the kiosks. Soon we will also have color-coded arrows at the intersections so that you can stay on your route with just a glance. Everyone deserves fun!

    Thanks, GL. I'm letting the hammerheads find their own way. (But I do need to encourage them not to pass up Hayride and Pine Twister just because they are "Greenies").

    ya today has sucked so far. let's see, surfed beautiful waves at the rivermouth from 530-700am. dropped dog off at doggy day care at 8, rode and built new trail from 830-10, and now i'm having my oatmeal before grabbing another load of 2016 firewood from the log yard on my way to work at the shop for noon.

    typical morning. YAY!

    sunny!

    keep up the great ascutney work jim!

    Took my kids here on Sunday and walked both their bikes up to the top of Hayrides....it was so worth it as they could not stop telling me how much fun they had...I just need to figure out how to tow them to the top! I heard that they are building some more kid/beginner trails this year...can't wait!
    Don't argue with idiots...they will take you down to their level and beat you with experience

    Jim, Getting back to the subject...That is a fabulous idea...Everyone needs to know what is best for them to ride---easy for the "Dude" is not always easy for people looking to start MTB'ing...All need to have fun..even the first timer..or they will not come back... Look forward to riding marked loops to test my skills progress, at 67 any skills are appreciated... Rock On

    Hello, My girlfriend and I are headed to Ascutney State Park on the 5,6, and 7 of July. Can we get a map and/or ride right from the campground?

    We are in the process of building a novice loop at the campground. By July 6th, we should have a 2 1/2 mile lollipop loop open to ride. We start building the five-mile trail to Ascutney Trails next year. 'Til then, it's a 5 minute drive. Trail maps should available at the park, but if not, they are always available at the General Store in Brownsville - a 0.2 mile ride from the trail head.
