This is a nice loop trail with good views towards the southern presidentials. You'll have really good views from Avalon to Webster Cliffs. Mt. Tom and Field are wooded but Tom has a few views through the trees.

Hiked up Mt Field, Avalon & skipped Tom in May. Great hike but we deeply regretted not having cleats. There was 2.5 miles of snow hiking and many slips & falls! A little disappointed with the view and summit of Field. We liked all the friendly animals, gray jays, and an adorable Martin!

did the hike on Saturday 2/11/17. The trail was packed down quite well by snowshoers, 2-3 feet deep off the trail. ran into more than 30 other hikers along the trail. Used my microspikes and left the snowshoes in the car. Temps around 11 degrees. A great hike - took the avalon tral to the Mt Tom spur. Had so much fun, actually ran down the trail on return. Had a visit from a gray jay at the summit.
