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...

Beautiful trail starting right in town. Hiked it on a rainy fall morning and had it all to myself. Awesome. Clouds parted for views of town and countryside, Wow! A must do. Highly recommend.

We walked for 3 and a half hours up and around Mount Tom in. Woodstock, Vermont. The scenery was beautiful in the Fall. All the tracks were well signposted and so there was no fear of getting lost. We reached a lake called The Pogue and it was breathtaking. We walked for miles but it was all so easy we... More

Spend a few hours. Get up to the view points. Pick a fairly dry day. Also try Mt. Peg, which is south of town off Golf Avenue where Maple Street begins.

The Faulkner Trail at Mount Tom is a perfect family hike. It begins as a gentle gravel path and gradually progresses over about 1.5 miles of switchbacks to easy wooded terrain, steeper rocky slopes, and finally to a summit with steep drops to one side + guy wires to hold onto. There are several rest points with benches, plus picturesque... More

We have three kids ranging in age from 6 to 10. They loved this hike as did our dog. The trail wasn't overly crowded but there were certainly plenty of hikers with dogs and even some friendly horseback riders that we met at the top and chatted with for a while. FYI-We took the Precipice Trail part way down and... More

At least once a year, I go on this hike with my hiking group or alone with my dog. You can hike it almost year 'round. The mountain has a few moderate hills and is nicely marked with signs and arrows. The trails were carriage roads. Horses and well-behaved dogs are welcome. There are benches at viewing places. Access from... More

Climbed the mountain using the switchbacks and came down using the road. Great views from the top. Some nice benches on top to view the town of Woodstock below.
