Take a couple of hours and stop shopping! Faulkner Trail is a well designed nature trail to the top of Mount Tom. It's a beautiful walk, and should be easy enough for most ages. We walked from Mountain Rd. up the trail to Tom, and...More

It is an easy hike from the parking lot off Prosper Road. Not too much elevation and what there is is gradual. The view is worth it!

It's doable on one of the trails, but not all of them. I can't recall the name of the trail we ascended on, it was much safer than the one we descended on.
