Ascutney Trails Association (ATA)
Please check trail conditions before you go!
ATA is immensely proud of their trails, carefully planned and routed to guide you through some of the most beautiful and diverse terrain in New England. The hand-built trails stand as a premier destination for mountain bikers from all over the northeast and beyond and offer a challenging and enjoyable riding experience for riders of all skill levels. TrailForks is the prime resource for keeping up to date with their trails, conditions and status. Use it to plan your ride, account for level of difficulty, and learn some suggested loops.
The classic printed trail map also offers a guide to the trail networks and can be purchased from the Brownsville Butcher and Pantry – 871 VT 44 Brownsville, Vermont 05037.
This is their original and largest public mountain biking network, and can be accessed from both the Ascutney Outdoors Center and Town Forest trailheads. This network consists of about 35 miles of trails for non-motorized recreational use, located at the base and western flank of Mt. Ascutney. Below are some suggested loops and notes as to what’ll find out on the trails. A note to the stronger rider: you can access each of the following areas from either trailhead and make a day of it, traversing across the mountainside and back. Good times!
