Comments
Comments: up Bicentennial, down Weathersfield

State Trooper's SUV parked at Windsor TH. Hope it was just someone with a minor injury being escorted down. North side of Ascutney REQUIRES MicroSpikes or Hillsounds.

Trails are officially closed for mud season, so please go when it's cold and frozen to avoid damaging them.
