|I'm going to be in Hartland this weekend. I'm thinking of hitting Ascutney. I'd come down the Queechie to Rt.12 then go out to 4 corners and take a left, I'm pretty sure I go past Ascutney from this side, can I go up?|

|You usually have to pay the road toll to use the road. They don't care if you're a bicycle or a car. I think it's $3. But, being that it's after labor day, they may no longer be charging toll. Try http://www.vtstateparks.com/htm/ascutney.cfm
for more info.
Tough climb! The first 1.5 miles is 18+%. Gear appropriately. I used a 24ring w/ 11-23 cassette for the race there last year.

|Park across the street from the state park entrance. Theres a $2.50 fee to go up. Once at the top look for my helmet off the side of the parking lot that has the view of the valley. I forgot it there yesterday.|

|Thanks guys. I'll be riding the bike from mace hill off of Queechie, so I don't need to be concerned with parking. What I'm trying to get a handle on is if I can get up from the route I describe. I'm used to going down to Windsor and then out to Ascutney that way.|| |
