The roads and trails can be accessed from the park entrance on Route 12 or from the parking lot on Prosper Road. They are open from dawn to dusk.

Use of the trails is free and open to the public for walking, hiking, and horseback riding. In the winter, trails are groomed for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing by the Woodstock Inn & Resort Nordic Center. Trail passes are required for winter use, call the Nordic Center at 802.457.6674.

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.
