Sport Trails Of The Ascutney Basin

Mission Statement

The purpose of STAB is to advocate for continued accessibility of low-impact, local trails used for multiple non-motorized sports in the Vermont towns of West Windsor, Hartland, Reading, Weathersfield and Windsor.  We will achieve this through mutual cooperation with landowners, other local organizations, state and local officials and conservation groups.  STAB seeks to educate all parties involved with respect to environmentally sound methods of responsible trail building, use, and maintenance. STAB seeks permission from private and public landowners to create and maintain sport trails.


Established in 2006 by a group of mountain bikers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, STAB is a volunteer organization, whose goal is to build and maintain a sustainable and viable local trail network through partnerships with public and private landowners in the towns surrounding Ascutney Mountain. Early on, STAB focused on the West Windsor Town Forest and Ascutney Mountain Resort land as a unique and contiguous forest to build a sizable, public trail network that could provide endless trail combinations and a huge variety of rides. From this vision was born the acclaimed Ascutney Trails trail network.


Since 2013, STAB has operated as a chapter of the statewide advocacy organization, Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA). To learn more about this relationship, visit our VMBA info page.
