this is a national park service trail which means it is properly maintained and staffed. It is 1.4 miles to the summit up hill. At the top is a beautiful pond that you must circle. So the round trip is 2.6 or so. If you have medical issues don't do it but the normal 70 year old, like me, can... More

Travel up Mount Tom on the route that intersects with the Pogue. Its a beautiful, moderate hike, takes about two hours round trip. We do this every time we visit Woodstock. Magical!!

Enjoyed a nice hike here. Trail is fairly well maintained especially the first half. Took about 45minutes to an hour to walk to the top and back down at a fairly brisk pace. The view of Woodstock is hard to see in the summer.

We parked at the Billings Farm and walked up into the National Park to access Mt. Tom. The park rangers have excellent maps and will suggest a hike that works for you. We ended up at Mt. Tom's South Peak, where the views are, but our overall hike was about 3 hours and covered many areas, including the secluded North... More

A short walk from the Woodstock Inn to the park and trailhead. Easy hike to the top of Mt. Tom with a very nice view of Woodstock. We extended the hike and eventually came out at the farm museum. Very pleasant!

We had a really nice hike up from Faulkner Park, although the last little stretch was steep and slippery in the rain. Be sure to have a trail map! We took a different route down and ended up very far from our car! :)

I learned about this hike by reading other reviews on Trip Advisor and saw that it was very near the Woodstock Inn where I was staying. The walk over to the Faulkner Trail on Mount Tom takes you over a cute covered bridge and into a neighborhood of beautiful homes. The park at the bottom of the Faulkner Trail is... More

An enjoyable hike up the precipice trail, with plenty of diversity in terrain and foliage. Rewarded with a great view of the village at the top. A nice stroll back down the carriage trails made for an enjoyable afternoon!

Pretty slippery when we went because there was a lot of melting ice, but in general the climb is moderate and the summit beautiful. Benches at the top to soak in the view!
