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.

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.
