Mount Ascutney Is Vermont’s Only Non-Active Volcano, And It’s Worth A Stop
At 3,144 feet, Mount Ascutney is a great destination in Vermont for scenic views and adventure. Although there are a few trail options that’ll take you through the mountain and to the summit, keep in mind that you’ll be hiking on a non-active volcano too. And while you won’t see an active volcano in the Green Mountain State, you’ll probably see a hang glider or two jumping off the mountain and soaring through the sky!
To reach Mount Ascutney, set your GPS to Weathersfield, Vermont.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
