Join Us for the 3rd Annual Peak to Peak Community Hike

Celebrate fall by enjoying the scenic and historic trails of Woodstock, Vermont during the third annual Peak to Peak event on Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Peak to Peak celebrates the Woodstock tradition of enjoying our trails and landscape while connecting with our community through healthy outdoor activities.

Guided hikes family-friendly activities and crafts, and local historians and naturalists will be on tap to connect you to the scenic mountains and trails of historic Woodstock. Starting at the village green, participants can join guided hikes to the top of Mount Tom or Mount Peg, or grab a map and explore without a guide. Special activities are planned for the top of both mountains, and hikers who reach the peaks will receive a special token. The first 100 hikers who reach the top of both Mt. Tom and Mt. Peg, completing the Peak to Peak Challenge, will receive a prize. The Peak to Peak event is free, and local healthy snacks and food will be available for purchase on the Green between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Guided hikes departing from the village green include:

Mt Peg Walk: Easy 1.5 mile round-trip. A moderate walk from town, rich with history and great views. Departs at 10:30 and 12:00 from the village green.

Mt Tom Hike: Moderate 3.5 mile round-trip. Hike the gentle switchbacks of the historic Faulkner Trail to South Peak for a panoramic view of the Ottauquechee valley. Departs at 10:30 and 12:00.

Peak to Peak Adventure: More strenuous 5 miles. Summit both Mt. Peg and Mt. Tom, stopping at the Woodstock village green for lunch. Departs at 10:30.
