Different people associate Mount Ascutney with different things. For some, it may be the hiking. For a select group of people, hang gliding comes to mind. Mount Ascutney is one of the premier spots in New England from which to launch a hang glider. For those activities (well, at least the hiking and hang gliding), spending the night camped out in the state park at the base of Mount Ascutney is a great way to start. There are two distinct camping areas within Mount Ascutney State Park. Sites 1 through 18 are off to the right as you enter the park. Sites 19 through 39 are in the loop off to the left. The auto road to the summit is directly ahead of you when you enter the park here.
