A small uphill to the top of a craggy hill in Arcadia management area. Be aware of hunting season and wear orange.
Decent trail. Took the white blazed in a loop, ended up coming out of Barber Rd. Nothing spectacular to see, minor views.
This is only PART of Mt Tom Trail! Once you cross Ten Rod Rd following the white markers (Mt Tom Trail) takes you off the AllTrails plotted loop! You finish on Barber Rd.
great trail for a first timer
We walked this trail today, Oct. 10th 2016 with two kids (9 and 7). The first part of the trail (heading South from the parking lot) was beautiful! Flat for about the first mile, following gorgeous Paris brook for a while and then on the second mile scrambling up rocks and walking on ledges. Unfortunately the view was mostly obstructed by trees, just a few glimpses over the woods were possible. But the children loved climbing around on the boulders at the top of the trail (about 2mi from the start.)
The second part of the trail north of Rt 165 was rather unspectacular but still pleasant, mostly downhill on a sandy dirt path.
Nice hike including some scrambling on rocks. we saw some riders on horseback and some people out fishing in the rivers. The only downside to this trail was when it intersects with the North/South trail, the white blazes seemed to drop off. You are left to just follow the blue blazes (at least as far as we could tell while we were out there) back to the parking area.
