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!

If you are staying in Woodstock, this is a great, quick hike to do. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and wanted a quick hike before dinner, and this trail provides some good elevation for views while being right outside of town. Some quick tips: There is Trail Work until August 8, 2014, while they make some repairs. The normal... More

Carriage road is wide and easy to hike. As trail narrows need to pay attention more. Gorgeous rocks and trees. Very dramatic placement of boulders makes for cavelike spaces and stunning trees, mosses etc. Half expected to see a hobbit or some such mythical creature pop out from this truly beautiful greenery.

We had stayed at the Woodstock Inn and could walk over to the trails for Mount Tom. There wasn't great signage showing where it was and we followed what we had read online for accessing some of the trails. We did the Faulkner Trail, which was not strenuous (coming from someone who is out of shape) and the trail mainly... More

This hike starts in Faulkner Park just past the beautiful downtown area of quaint little Woodstock, VT (which also looks to deserve some time for strolling the shops and historic buildings). This hike is perfect for hikers of all abilities as the switchbacks are very easy to traverse and make the climb feel almost nonexistent. There are several shortcuts between... More
