Spend a weekend in Vermont piloting your car or motorcycle up the Ascutney Mountain Auto Road. This is probably one of the best opportunities you will have to drive or ride a closed back road as fast as you want to for an entire weekend!
Hill climbing is often people's first "competition" event and we want this to be a fun experience for participants of every level. The great thing about hillclimb is that it's just you, the empty road, and the clock. There's no traffic, no need to look in your rearview mirror for other competitors, no speed limits or law enforcement on this closed course. The Ascutney Toll Road rises 2,300 vertical feet on a twisty 3.7 mile paved surface that has an average grade of 12%, with some areas graded at 19%. It's a blast to drive and ride. Unlike other hillclimb events at Ascutney, we will be running the full hill.
We have reserved the entire Ascutney State Park Campground for this event and welcome participants, spectators and volunteers to come spend the weekend.
If you would like to camp at the Ascutney State Park there is a 3 night minimum. Contact them directly at 802 674 2060 to reserve a site.
Registration Fee: $175 for both days.
