"The Escoheag Trail to the Mount Tom Trail offers kids who love to scramble up and down rocky hills a number of places to climb, especially within the first mile. Children under five will need assistance with several rocky stream crossings in the initial leg of the trip. Younger ones will feel safe running ahead on the second mile of trail crossing Mount Tom ridge; it is well worn, extremely level, and straight. On the approach to the final cliffs offering fine views, the people-sized boulders, perched precariously on either side of the trail, will inspire kids to invent all sorts of trailside games. The Arcadia Management Area operates several campgrounds, the closest being the one off Escoheag Hill Road. Check online to find campground locations and rates if planning an overnight in the area."
