MTB Trails Closed 10/9 Morning


Ascutney Trails will be closed to mountain bikes Saturday October 9 from 8am to 1pm for a horse event. The affected trailheads are AOC, Town Forest and Mountainside Drive. Swoops and Loops is unaffected. The Norcross Trail is open, but we ask that you stay away from the Ski Area and Town Forest Trails until after 1:00. Suggested ride is out-and-back from Swoops and Loops to the Norcross Quarry.

Some horses are very frightened by bikes and can react violently, putting all riders in danger of severe injury. If you ever encounter horses on the trail, please be very careful. STOP your bike. CALL OUT to the rider and ASK for further directions.

Here are the scheduled trail closings for this fall:

October 9 (8am to 1pm) - Horse Event

AOC, Town Forest, & Mtnside Drive trailheads
October 13 (1:00 to 7:00pm) - High School Race
