Mount Ascutney Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rising above geologically unrelated surrounding hills, Ascutney is a classic monadnock- style mountain that towers over the Connecticut River Valley. The sprawling peak formed 100 million years ago when hot magma pushed toward the Earth’s surface. Its name comes from a series of Algonquin words meaning “mountain of the rocky summit.” Today, Ascutney is surrounded by more than 2000 acres of conserved land that includes a state park, four primary hiking trails, and a campground. This 6-mile round-trip journey along the Weathersfield Trail visits pleasant cascades and picturesque vistas en route to a summit observation tower that showcases exquisite 360-degree views of four states."
