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.

Nice not to rough family hike up to South Peak via Pogue, gorgeous view of Woodstock. Recommend this hike to families with younger children.

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

Small mountain, but the paths were well maintained (until the summit, where it got a bit rocky for some in our group). Great view of the town from the "Cliff" at the peak.

Relatively new to hikes in green terrain (I'm from Arizona), this hike in early Spring blew my mind. Great, well-kept trail was very low difficulty/intensity and afforded wonderful views (throughout and at the top) of the surrounding Woodstock town. Quintessential New England! I recommend starting from Mountain Avenue and going over the "mountain," ending up in Billings Park. There are... More

Took this hike in the middle of April and it was enjoyed by the whole family. Trails are easy to follow and not very strenuous. My nine year old daughter did very well.

Great, varied terrain for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing--we loved the Pogue on a snowy day, then again on a bright sunny day...and the views from the mountain are great. Signs are very good but not always great--though many friendly people to ask for directions.

Went snow-shoeing at Mt Tom after a snowfall of 8 inches, and the trails were accessible, varied, and offered various levels of challenge. The trails around the Pogue are particularly beautiful, and if you stand very still, wildlife emerges, including a nice variety of birds,

This is a very easy mountain to climb for relatively minimal effort, even in winter (we went on 12/11/13). My 64 and 70-year old parents and I hiked from the parking area on Prosper Rd up Prosper Trail, to a short section of North Ridge Loop, past the Pogue (a small lake) to Mount Tom Road and up to the...
