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 is mostly a city park trail with a well marked trail. You hear the traffic from Woodstock during most of the hike. If you are looking for a wilderness trail, do not bother coming here.

Hiked Faulkner Trail up to Mount Tom on Earth Day (April 22) and it was a perfect sunny Spring day. Trail is easy to find from Faulkner Park - across from Woodstock Inn there is a covered bridge on Mountain Ave, go over that and across River street to follow the curve to Faulkner Park and then begin the hike on the pavement next to a stone wall. Trail is well marked and the switchbacks make the assent easier. Starts to get a little rocky half way up but the hardest part is close to the top where it gets narrow, a little steep and more technical but that does not go on for long. Nice views. It would be lovely later in the spring and in the fall. You can extend the hike by heading further to the Pogue or any number of other trail options. If just doing the climb to Mount Tom and back probably a few hours at a leisurely pace with stops to enjoy the views.

We hiked Prosper Trail to Pogue to North Loop back to Prosper. Well maintained trails. There were some climbs but nothing too difficult.

A combination of carriage roads and foot trails. Didn't have a map with all the trails off the main trail so we were walking in circles at times. The carriage roads are very well maintained and easy to walk on. The foot trails are more of your traditional hiking. Not too many views from the trails we took other than the Pogue. The trails are well marked. Can be as short or as long as you want with the spiderweb of spin off trails.
