Kimberly Pater (104) over 3 years ago N/A: 0 Completed 1 Reviews This mountain, one of the mountains in the Mt. Tom range (the other Mt. Toms being in Moodus, CT and Holyoke, MA) has a few different trails. The trail that begins near the parking lot is the easier of the two that lead to the lookout tower. If you walk down the road towards the pond another trail is marked and leads to the tower as well, connecting to the aforementioned easier trail. The latter trail is a bit more demanding. Although the tower is closed for repairs now, I pretty much grew up hiking this trail and can say that it is worth the trip any time of year. Right now the foliage is amazing. Today I discovered another trail but it is not marked with an obvious sign like the other trails, so I'll let you discover it for yourself! Very beautiful, great swimming in the summer, too. I've been told that you can see Long Island with binoculars on a clear day, but even without binoculars the view is spectacular.
