Mount Ascutney Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A true monadnock, a singular peak that is not part of a ridge, Mount Ascutney stands alone in southeastern Vermont. It is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the region.
The Abenakis called the mountain “Cas-cad-nac,” which means, “mountain with the rocky summit.” The name is misleading. While there are areas of open rock around the summit, Ascutney does not have an open, bald top, but it is worth the hike for historic and scenic reasons."
