Lovely hike with wonderful views of Woodstock

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.

We hiked the Faulkner Trail up Mt. Tom. We've previously hiked other trails up Mt. Tom from Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park and thought we'd try this trail during our visit. This is a fairly easy hike until the last 100 yards or so. The trail is accessed off of Mountain Road (on the north side of the River, one block north... More

from the south side of Mt Tom you get a great view of Woodstock. The trail system is being revamped by a woman who dedicated it to her husband's cardio health and created the system after a German trail. It is a nice walk up to summit. The billings trails and carriage paths are better walking and well marked. some... More

A very nice walk to the Pogue - a lake located on the mountain. Easy hike, large trail, suitable for old timers such as myself.
