The view from Mount Ascutney, looking over Brownsville

This spot is up the "Brownsville Trail", at the "old quary". This is one of my favorite hikes from the house. The trailhead is 5 minutes from the house, then about a 45 minute walk up, or a vigorous 20 minute run. The quary is overgrown, but you can still see the large rock face, a quary pit filled with water, giant timbers that supported the crane, water pipes, steel rails, and a big ol' pile of granite. Walk through dwarf birch trees, picnic on the granite bolders, and behold the sweeping views.
