You didn't say what part of Vermont you are located, but here is something I just saw posted on Facebook.

The Race

Race #1, Western NH Trail Run Series (Special Note: This race is located at the base of the old Mount Ascutney Ski Area in Vermont)

Saturday June 8, 2013
10K Description: A hilly lollipop loop course on some beautiful and challenging trails. The first half is primarily ascending on mixed single and double track. The second half is primarily descending on single track. Follows the 5K course for the first and last miles of the race. TheDetails: Race begins with a 3/4 mile meander through field and forest along a trail that has boardwalks through the muddy spots (Home Again). The next few miles of the race is primarily climbing, first along double track (from the Nordic Center lot, up Home Again, left into Deer Run, left into Gracies Loop DT), and then along a beautiful wooded trail dotted with large boulders. (Gracies Loop ST). Begin a brief but fast descent (Gracies Loop, then down steep Home Again DT) and then turn into a traverse along a hillside and enjoy the falls if it has rained recently (Falls Trail). Continue ascending (read: hiking) up a short but very steep double track (Coronary, left onto Bicentennial, left into Quarry) and onto single track again (right into Pass the Buck). Congrats! Your climbing is more or less done here, about the halfway point in the race. Begin a long fun descent with some challenging footwork (Cloud Climber, right onto Nimbus) and then emerge into the fields (Upper Mile Long Field) before rejoining the 5K course along fun single track (right into Cort's Jester, left into New Blue) coming out into the mile long field for the third time. A quick double track jaunt back to the old parking lot then return with the 3/4 mile meander that the race started with (Home Again).
