The Ascutney Trails Association (ATA) is an energetic group of hikers, mountain bikers, back-country skiers and outdoor enthusiasts overseeing trails on Mount Ascutney and it’s surroundings. Steeped in history, the organization incorporates both the original ATA and STAB (Sports Trails of the Ascutney Basin) organizations and is proud to move forward with its vision for Mt. Ascutney’s trail future.
The mission of ATA is to advocate for and maintain accessibility of low-impact trails and structures used for human powered recreational activities in the townships of the Mt. Ascutney Area, and to support and preserve the deep historic connection Mt. Ascutney has to Vermont and New Hampshire. The ATA will adhere to environmentally sound methods of responsible trail building, use, and stewardship while promoting outdoor education and cooperation with landowners.
