Ascutney Trails will be closed this Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th, for the Ragnar relay running race. It will stretch across nearly all of the network, so we cannot leave any of the mountainside trails open except Swoops and Loops on the east side of the mountain. Because 2,000 campers will be setting up in the main parking lot, we ask that on Thursday, you access the trails from the Town Forest trail head at 750 Coaching Lane. We hate to have to close trails, but without the revenue from these events (including the Point to Point on Saturday, August 11th) we'd be unable to build and maintain the trails through the current system of VMBA membership, generous donations and the added help of volunteer labor. Thanks for your patience.
