Our first time going to Woodstock and decided to take our dog with us. We took the carriage paths to the top. Was an easy hike and the views were beautiful. The lake at the top was a surprise and the pastures along the were lovely.

We stayed in Woodstock and set off the following morning to explore Mount Tom. Walked through a housing estate to the bottom of the slope and walked up the gradual hill via Faulkner Trail - An easy walk that switchbacks up to the South Peak of Mount Tom where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Woodstock village and...

We went in March when it had recently snowed. The trail had been walked on so we were still able to follow the snow covered path. it was a bit slippery but doable. Make sure you have appropriate foot wear for the snow. We took the trail from in town and it wasn't very difficult. And once we got to... More

This mountain is a can't miss if you go to Woodstock. It is an easy hike or ski when you drive around to the parking area off of Prosper Rd. You drive up a good part of the elevation, so the climb is minimal. It is about 40 minutes to the overlook. The view of the town of Woodstock from... More

Multiple carriage trail and easy hiking trails to the top which overlooks Woodstock. Park Ranger tours are available. A great place for a leisurely afternoon. Especially good during Fall foliage.

Going up via Faulkner trail it's relatively easy until the top and takes approx 45 mins , once up there you have very nice views . Getting to the top over the rocks for... More

We climbed to the top of Mount Tom (although at 1250ft it is hardly Everest) using the Faulkner Trail, a zig-zag path through the trees that allowed us to gain the height quickly and we felt a better option than walking up the long drive (as in carriage drive) from the Marsh Billings Estate. Once up we were rewarded by... More

You can get to the top of Mt Tom via the carriage roads in the Marsh Billings estate or via the Faulkner Trail from Faulkner Park which is what we did. The very well maintained path zig zags up the mountain until the end when it gets rockier. The view from the top is lovely in three directions.
