      Welcome to Ascutney Trails, Vermont’s premier recreational trail network featuring more than 35 miles of hand-crafted, biker-built, mountain bike trails and miles of quality hiking trails. Located in and around the Village of Brownsville, Vermont, Ascutney Trails are just minutes from Exits 8 and 9 off of Interstate 91.

      Ascutney Trails has a network of about 35 miles of trails for non-motorized recreational use, located at the base and western flank of Mt. Ascutney, mostly on the land of the Ascutney Mountain Resort and the town forest of West Windsor Vermont. Although the double-track trails date back 30 years or more, starting in August of 2006, members of Sport Trails of the Ascutney Basin (STAB), began building trails more amenable to mountain biking, trail running and back-country skiing. The trails are open to the public at no cost, with an extensive sign system, and maps are sold at Brownsville General Store, Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Ascutney Mountain Resort, and local bike shops.

      There are two trailheads with parking available:

      The Ski Tow Road trailhead – Enter Ascutney Mountain Resort from Route 44, stay to the left, to the far end of the large parking lot on the right. This is the main entrance to the trails, and has an information kiosk with changing room and porta-john.

      For direct access to the more challenging trails, West Windsor Town Forest Trailhead is found by travelling west on route 44, about one mile from the town hall and turning left onto Coaching Lane. In one mile bear left at the “To Town Forest” sign, pass one house, then bear right. You will pass a sign for Ascutney Trails, bear left at a gate and climb to the trailhead parking lot and kiosk.
