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.

My boyfriend and I decided to take this hike on our trip to Woodstock. Such a nice hike, with guided pathways, although we did venture off them quite a few times. It's a very beautiful hike and such a great view when you get to the top. Living in the an area similar to this Vermont area, I've hiked some... More

We didn't hike Mt. Tom -- it was February. But we loved the views of it from driving throughout the Woodstock area. I especially love this place in the summer because it so green and pastoral.
