Twenty miles of scenic carriage roads and trails crisscross the gentle forested slopes of Mount Tom, one of the oldest professionally managed woodlands in America. Walk under the cool canopy of centuries-old hemlocks, beech and open-growth sugar maples to visit the Pogue, a 14-acre pond perched near the mountain summit. Don't miss Mount Tom's South Peak, where you can enjoy a bird's-eye view of Woodstock.
