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.

Leisure hike. Great for friends to just make some memories and not sweat to death

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.
