The paths that wind over and around Mount Tom are tame by Vermont standards. Reflecting its proximity to Woodstock, the civilized Faulkner Trail switches methodically back and forth up the side of the mountain, passing stone walls, park benches, and a stone bridge. Rather than being intrusive, these subtle human touches are an improvement to the natural landscape. The switchbacks that begin the hike were made for kids, who will delight in this zigzagging route to the summit. More adventurous tykes may prefer the return trip along the slightly wilder North Peak Trail.
