Green Pastures and Green Mountains Walk through one of Vermont's most beautiful landscapes, under the shade of sugar maples and 400-year-old hemlocks, across covered bridges and alongside rambling stone walls. This is a landscape of loss, recovery, and conservation. This is a story of stewardship, of people taking care of places - sharing an enduring connection to land and a sense of hope for the future.

I if you follow directions on the way back you have to go through tough trail. A lot of fun though.

This trail is very entertaining to hike. Lots of interesting spots, and great woods for photography. If I lived in the area I would definitely go again, I bet its amazing in the fall.

Great dirt road and trail combination hiking! Beautiful scenery. Pinnacle trail down to base rocky, narrow and great challenge as we train with packs for LT.

A relatively quick hike. Moderate ascent, but evens out. Great spot at the summit for a picnic. Take the Red Pine and Spruce trails back down.

Such a beautiful hike! You park across from the Billings Farm and museum. Then walk towards Rte. 12, cross in the cross walk and that will bring you to the "trailhead". The trail is a small dirt road so it's super kid friendly. There are some beautiful views of fields on the way up, little benches for resting and it's very clearly marked whether you are going to the South Peak (the view down into Woodstock), the pogue or any other off-shoot of a trail. Just a heads up that dogs (and humans) are not permitted to swim in the water.

A great trail with lots of options for duration and difficulty level. It gets a little steep near the peak, but there are handrails. You'll see quite a bit of traffic on a Saturday or Sunday but everyone is friendly and the trails are wide. My dog loved it (there were lots of dogs on the trail), but she really loved the ice cream at the White Cottage Snack Bar down the road.

Started at the Faulkner Trail and then linked Mount Tom Road to the Pogue. Amazingly beautiful! We took the Mountain Road back to the Visitors Center and clocked just under six miles. Highly recommend this hike.

This is a wide smooth trail with little incline for most of it. Great trail for family even with small kids.

Nice loop hike that's easily accessible from downtown Woodstock. Several other trails intersect it if you are looking to hike more than the 2 mile loop depicted here.
