We drove to the "midway" point of Futures trail. We have a sturdy 8 y.o. and the trail was challenging for him and his reasonably fit parents! But the views were worth it. Many people at the top of the Observation Tower -- find a hang glider launch for less crowded vistas. Wear sturdy shoes even if driving to the... 更多
We did the short hike to the top of Mt Ascutney. Easy and enjoyable. The drive up to top was beautiful and we stopped so my husband could get nice views with his drone. Glad we went.
Just got back from our son's wedding that took place on the top of the mountain. 30 in attendance. Walked the last mile from the parking lot. Great views. Memorable location. highly recommend it for outdoor folks too. On the trail down to the bottom (way past the parking lot), there's a super cool spring and a series of water... 更多

We stopped by here on our journey from northern Vermont to Connecticut, so we didn't stay too long. Paid $8 to drive up the auto road to near the summit - a relatively straightforward drive and no worries about being able to pass downward traffic. There are a couple of stopping points on the way up, and then a car... 更多

It's windy up there, so an extra layer helps. The West Point vista is amazing & worth the detour! The summit has... 更多
My significant other and I went up the Windsor trail on July 2. We were the first at the trail head (Rte. 44A) at 8 a.m. and lucky we were as there were about 15 cars there when we returned. They have a great kiosk with a map and others you can take. It is a great trail that starts... 更多
I have climbed Mt. Ascutney many times. Each climb results in different views of the valley, Okemo Mt., and on a clear day wonderful vistas from far away.
This state park is great for campers, hikers and anyone who likes a wonderful view of the surrounding states. The park has camp sites available. There are many hiking trails leading to the summit of Ascutney. You can also drive about 3 miles to a parking lot with a fantastic view, some picnic tables and a port-a-potty. But, if you... 更多
Took the Wethersfield trail to the peak and it was challenging but totally worth the time and effort. View from the top is breathtaking. Great aerobic workout to get there but with time on you side anyone can make the trek.
