A pleasant hike up double wide paths to a picturesque panoramic views of Woodstock. Do not over look this adventure. Full hike up and back took us about 3.5 hours in the snow on the double wide paths. The smaller paths are covered with remelted snow and a bit dangerous during the winter months. I suggest packing a few sandwiches... More

Every Fall, we take a weekend to visit Woodstock and always find time for a hike up Mt. Tom. It's a simple hike up the mountain, the, trails are clearly marked, and just enough of a challenge to get the heart pumping, but not exhausting. The view at the top is breathtaking, and the walk back down the access road... More

Great hiking and beautiful views. Don't leave your camera behind the vistas are worth it. We ended up at Marsh Billings something that was a pleasant surprise.

Walking up and down takes about two hours depending on your walking speed. The hike is considered moderate if you take the mountain trail which we did. Once on top the vistas are magnificent. At the summit there are a few places to sit and enjoy the views. We came down the Precipice Trail which was quite steep and slippery,... More

Friends told us that we HAD to do Mount Tom. So, we road tripped it to Mt. Tom. We get there and find out that due to the weather, we could only drive 1/2 way up. They still wanted to charge us full price. I think not! We turned around and found a great little town nearby to chill in... More

It's a long uphill walk (downhill on the way back of course) but well worth the effort for the views across Woodstock - don't miss it. One of the prettiest walks I've done.

There are nice, wide, carriage paths that make this a relatively easy hike in a beautiful environment. There are also other trails to the 2 summits.

Decided not to do the long walk up the roadway to the top but short cut across the "Precipice trail." Whilst the clue is in the name, this was a little hairy for my other half and we cut it short and took the zig-zag route down. At least we saw plenty of chipmunks!

Wonderful hike to the summit using an old carriageway through forests of birch and maple! There were great aerial views of Woodstock and the fall foliage colours. We combined this hike with a "peak to peak" hike from Mt Tom to Mt Peg (via the village green)

We visited the market and purchased some unique gifts to take home. It is easy to find and the vegetable choices are abundant. Jellies, Jams, arts, crafts etc. It is great.
