This is an amazing trail. Very well marked. So many spots to see views and the quarry is pretty neat. I will say if you have fear of heights this is not for the faint of heart. Will definately do again!

Rocky and steep

Was challenging in places, but overall not horrible. Nice look out at the old quarry. Probably not a hike I would do again, but not a bad hike.

This was a gorgeous trail, mildly challenging, with plenty of interesting stops/views along the way!

Moderate difficulty, wouldn't call it hard. Lookout tower is sweet, but otherwise the view is hindered by tree line. The relics in the quarry are very cool. Overall I would hike this again.

This trail requires few hours to complete, very rocky, but definitely worth the hike, if you choose this trail and would like to finish please plan ahead with some snacks and especially remember bring enough water with you.

Definitely not a trail for beginners. The trail gets very rocky at times and can be difficult to navigate if not careful. View at the top is incredible and definitely worth the hike. A few good stops along the way for some nice views and the abandoned quarry is a neat find. Would definitely hike this again

Fine trail but only view is from fire tower and my dog couldn't climb so I skipped.

Love the abandoned quarry, especially the old equipment that got left behind. The trail up to the quarry is very easy, but the next mile is steep and rocky. Nice scenery along the way, several good viewing points looking in various directions.

Nice hike but top is at a cell phone tower. Not great. Stop at the lookout 1/3 way up is best views. Steep rocky trail in many places.

Not a trail for a beginner, in my book. Wicked great views, which were great spots to stop and get some food and water. The observation tower at the top is crazy! you can see to the Camel Back in the Montpelier, VT area, Mt Washington, Monadnock in NH and down to Wachusett Mt in MA!

My favorite of the Ascutney trails, this one has lots of views, a rock quarry and several trail features that I enjoy like where the trail negotiates a large rock wall. More technical than Cascade Falls and less strenuous than the Windsor.
