This is true Ascutney and features our signature singletrack, switchbacks, brook crossings, bridges and rock gardens. The ride ends with our new flow trail for a happy flow finish. The higher mileage and few sections of advanced trail make this more of an advanced intermediate ride, and is a great sampling of both our ski area/mountainside trails and our Town Forest network.
