Great low key hike. Kid friendly!

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.

The reward for walking to the top of the hill is the pond where you can stroll completely around the water and enjoy the mirrored reflections. Return the way you entered.

From Prosper Rd past the Pogue to Marsh Billings estate. 2 hours. Easy gravel path to a moderate trail. Very nice and ends on the estate which is beautiful. I recommend picking up the Marsh Billings trail map at the Prosper Rd parking area or on the estate, as there are a network of trails in this park so you don't need to stick to the prescribed trail map.

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.

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.

great view!

The trail starts out steep then as you ascend t trail levels out, when you get to the pond at the end it's really beautiful.

Definitely an easy/moderate trail. Can be more strenuous depending on which side paths you take. Very lovely and tranquil in fall.

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.
