Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mount Ascutney, elevation 958 m (3,143 ft), is southern Vermont's only monadnock, or lone mountain. (It is not the highest peak in Windsor County, Vermont, however, that honor falling to Gillespie Peak to the west.) Particularly noteworthy about Ascutney are its granite outcrops, one of which, near its peak, serves as a launching point for hang-gliders. The mountain is very steep, and its trails traverse a Vermont state forest. The name "Ascutney" comes from the Abenaki word Ascutegnik, which was the name of a settlement near where the Sugar River meets the Connecticut River. The Abenaki name for the mountain is Cas-Cad-Nac, which means "mountain of the rocky summit". The mountain's base straddles several villages — Ascutney, Brownsville, Windsor, and West Windsor — and it is located only several miles off exit 8 on Interstate 91. The mountain itself is visible from the top of Mount Washington, seventy miles away.
