Took the M&M South trail. This trail basically takes you along the cliff to the summit. It takes about an hour and a half to reach the summit. Great views along this entire hike.

We had a fantastic experience hiking Mt. Tom. We hiked the M&M Trail North. We loved the views from so many points of the trail. The top was well worth the effort. Gorgeous view. I would recomend this trail to anyone wanting to experience mother nature and all its beauty while getting a great workout!

3/11/06- Great day, nice easy hike with instant gratification of cliffs and views. Cool 200 million year old lava (basalt). Great view of a perigrine perched below us on the cliff. Hang gliders launching from neat the Mt. Tom summit.
