Ascutney Mountain, Vermont

This mountain is situated in the towns of Windsor and Weathersfield. It is 3,116 feet above the Connecticut river, at Windsor; and 3,320 feet above the level of the sea. It consists of granite and is nearly destitute of vegetable covering. From Windsor to the base, is 4 miles. Its ascent is generally steep, but travelers who delight to view rich and variegated scenery, will be amply rewarded for the toil of a pilgrimage to its summit.

  • Ascutney Mountain today is home to the Ascutney Mountain Resort for skiing and recreation.
