Planned on hiking Willey, Field, and Tom via the Avalon loop and misread the sign to Willard (starts at the same trail head). Ended up just doing Tom to get my husband's first 4,000 footer on the 48 4,000 footer journey. Having already hiked 3.2 miles on Willard, legs were a little tired by the time we hit the hardest parts of the Mount Tom trail. The trail had many roots and rocky spots with very steep inclines but with breaks it was manageable. We saw many people on the trail going to the Zealand Hut and met some really nice hikers along the way. Plan for a brief stop at the summit (not marked and small trail areas at the top to see moderate views). Saw on instagram later last night that the wild Grey Jay birds that you can feed from your hands, bummer we were too tired to feed bird rather than ourselves! Had a great Sunday within the Crawford Notch State Park!!
