There are more stunning hikes, but this was very nice and within walking distance of our Woodstock, VT Inn

Even though the trails were being repaired we thoroughly enjoyed climbing up to the top and then walking back down to the Billings Farm. We did all of this right from our hotel - the Woodstock Inn. Such a pleasure to be able to walk out the door and get a decent hike in w/o having to travel anywhere in... More

Lovely, fairly easy hike, but the switchbacks on the Faulkner trail are just silly. A little bit steeper and shorter would have done it. Nicely maintained and lovely views at the top.

We hiked to the summit early in the morning, taking the Precipice trail...bit easier in the low light. We got to the top just as the sun broke over the hills on the east of Woodstock. It was a foggy morning and we were above the fog. Incredible view. Worth the 30 minute hike. Pictures speak for themselves...

When in Vermont, we try to get "into nature" a little each day. In June, we grabbed s couple water bottles, a few granola bars, parked at the cemetery, and started out hike up Mount Tom. You can choose the winding, slow climb, or you can take a more direct, steeper route, but either way you are rewarded with an... More

We hiked to the top via the Faulkner Trail. We found it to be an enjoyable hike with nice switchbacks; a smooth trail that gets rockier as you get to the top. There are two look-outs. The first has a few benches, but don't stop here, keep going up the trail a bit for the final view. We went during... More

The hike was nice - not too difficult but hard enough so you feel like you actually hiked. A trail map would've been nice. They have them at the visitors center, but we started our hike at a more popular spot which didn't have any maps available

A fairly easy hike but not for someone with limitations. Easy grade, a few narrow sections but good strong wire to hold on to. That section is very short. I am wary of heights and felt secure with the support structure that was added.

Fantastic hike for approximately 1 hour to the top, not very easy, bit absolutely not excessive challenging. The views from the top are breathtaking! Don't miss for an outdoor beautiful day activity!

If you are staying in Woodstock Vt, the hike up Mt. Tom is within walking distance and takes about 90 min to 2 hours roundtrip. Most of the terrain is easy for beginners and the view from the top is quite nice!
