Hang Gliding

Mt. Ascutney State Park is one of the premier hang gliding locations in Vermont. Good ridge soaring, excellent thermal flying, and cross country flying.  Many flights from Vermont to the Atlantic coast begin at this launch.  Many New England pilots have their first cross-country flight from here to Morningside Flight Park, which is 9.8 miles downwind.  Well known for its 1/3 mile hike to launch through the woods and rocks.
