It was a nice trail to bike/walk with my dog.

Not enjoyable since I had to look at the map every 10 minutes. Too many different trails. It would be nice if you know where you’re going. I couldn’t figure out where to park at the Shaw’s Outdoor Center so I parked at the medical office building. It was a Saturday when those offices are closed.

Great trails for families and dogs. Trails were all well marked and clear. Foliage was at peak and the views were lovely. Very peaceful.

Beautiful day for a hike up & down; spent some time at the top taking in the gorgeous views

I would agree with most of the other reviews that this is more of a walk on ATV type dirt roads / logging roads and not a traditional hike. The only part that resembles a hiking type trail is when you go up to summit (less than a quarter mile in length). And the summit up although steep is short enough in length that I would rate the entire trail as Easy/Moderate. There are lovely views along the way-open fields, rock walls and forest. And if you follow the All Trails description of how to get to the summit you won’t go off the path despite lack of markers. And there are three green arrow markers in the places you really need them. The view at the top was quite nice but is somewhat obstructed due to trees. Although worth it and quite sunny the day I did the hike. I saw only 1 ATV and not another person on a weekday. I would definitely do this again.

Took a detour off the suggested path (Mount Tom Road) towards the Billings Trail which took us to the North Peak (still had directions since this is also the end of the Faulkner Trail loop). This then connected us to the Precipice Trail on the way down. The latter half of the hike was definitely more rugged and challenging than the first half, which was more of a gravel road. Seemingly less traveled, the woods were very peaceful, although we didn’t pass any real lookout.

Much easier going up Faulkner then down. Crazy beautiful view of Woodstock VT from South Peak.

well marked trails saw a bear on our way up! the precipice trail was beautiful!

Beautiful hike for everyone! Great views near the top! Switchback part of trail is easy. A couple of fairly steep parts near top. There is a guide wire to hold onto.

Many gorgeous trails, well maintained and very well marked. We did the Pogue loop, around 8 miles total after we continued on up through the grassy fields, which you can see a path. Great view of Woodstock at the star. Very peaceful , looking forward to going again in the fall to see the colors.

Great hike. Beautiful view of the lake, but could use trail markers and a trail map at the beginning.

mountain road > upper > precipice > pogue > mountain road back really lovely moderate trail

3.5total. Didn't start recording at begining

My wife and I did this trail yesterday (June 14, 2019) and found it a little more than “moderate” and “kid friendly”. Just want people to know that the Precipice Trail section is very different than the carriage road section. It has guide fences in the tough spots while it is crossing the bare cliff in some places but there is no real danger, just some “excitement” and “challenge”. Now here are factors to weigh: we are both fit and active but 72 years old, it was damp having rained the morning, and we went Down the Precipice trail rather than up. So this may not be typical of your experience. But with our hiking poles we made it without incident. And I want to give high praise to the app itself. It located us on the trail accurately for the whole time (we paused for lunch the Pogue). A similar app just discovered by me called Anchor Pointer did ok for the starting point, but could not mark The Pogue correctly.

Moderate hike with a gorgeous view at the top. We consider it a pretty good workout. Doable after work.

I've snowshoed this a few times...nice views and lots of switchbacks so no really steep parts. Stop at worthy kitchen afterwards for a snack and a beverage!

This was a nice easy to moderate hike with some great views and other sites along the way. Definitely go up the Precipice Trail to the top of Mount Tom. It could be somewhat tricky to descend if you are with kids or don’t have hiking or trail shoes on. The moss is amazing! The views on Mount Tom are nice so sit and enjoy it if you can. Some mud on the Precipice section but the rest of the trail was perfect. Pogue was pretty to walk around and keep your eyes out for the logs with carved sayings placed throughout the trail. The second half of the trail was nice and wide with a continuous descent. If you go into the visitor center there is a desk with someone that has good info on the trails and maps. Plus nice bathrooms! Overall an enjoyable hike.

Nice short trail which is well-maintained and clearly marked with blazes. Can be narrow in spots. Upper Trail with nice views of the lake at a picnic table and Lower Trail closer to the shore. Off season visit in the spring rain...early wildflowers appearing on the Upper Trail. We didn’t meet anybody in the park as it is still closed. Wouldn’t use this trail in winter. Boat access by the buildings as well as bathrooms and other facilities in season.

Great views from the top

Did a hiking loop here with micro spikes on April 5. Still packed snow with some icy parts, so be sure your footwear is appropriate. Beautiful views of Woodstock from Mount Tom, although in icy conditions, taking the switchbacks up or down the Precipice Trail is unadvisable.

Challenging in the winter with ice on the steeps

Set in the heart of Northfield VT right by Norwich University, it’s a popular hike for town people and for the military college across the street. Not too much flat terrain, but the mountain isn’t ridiculously steep. Lots to see on your way up with the quarry and training field along with the anchor for the old 1980s ski slope at the very top. Definitely a landmark for Northfield, but a huge historical aspect for Norwich University. Easy and fun hike for a family and pets!

Nice walk in the fall

Really nice!!
