The trail up to the top of mount Tom is well marked path which zig zags to the top so is therefore not too steep. No real views until you get to the top as the path is a wooded trail. On the day we did the trail, it was closed near the top for repairs, so check before you... More

A easy walk in the woods on a nice day. The view at the top is Woodstock village and surrounding hillsides. Nice but not spectacular.

This is a family friendly hike with several different trails, well blazed and maintained. You can walk to starting point from Woodstock if you are staying there.

Great views of the town of Woodstock and the surrounding hills from the top of Mt. Tom. Really spectacular leaf peeping spot in the autumn. A variety of hiking paths for any age or ability are available. Wooded areas, fields, a pond and the occasional deer. Nice little ski hut with porch to take a break and put your feet... More

Downtown Woodstock seems crass to me a local to the area. But the zigzag trail up from Faulkner Park--not an easy find off hwy 4 just west of downtown--has been recently improved with plenty of "hardpack" stone in the lower part, and has nice cable railings near the summit, some 500 feet higher. An arching path provides splendid views to... More

There are quite a few trails. They are nicely maintained and marked. Most are easy, some are moderately difficult. Good place to walk with the dogs, they are supposed to be leashed.

This hike is not for everyone. It is uphill, but, at the same time, it's quite gentle. So, if you're someone who is looking for a challenge or something relatively strenuous, this hike may not be your thing. On the other hand, if you're someone who is looking for a relatively easy stroll with a spouse or kids, this may... More

Whether you're a beginner or an expert hiker, it worth exploring the trials of Mount Tom. Dogs are welcomed, but must be leashed. No bicycles.
