A Woodstock, VT Two-fer – Mt. Peg (1,076 ft) and Mt. Tom (1,250 ft) – July 26th

After acquiring said cheeseburgers at McDonalds, we made our way to our first hike of the day – yes, we are going to walk up these 2 peaks.  The trail is just off the green in Woodstock, after GroovyBoy was loaded into the backpack, we set off for the summit.  The trail leads trough the woods and opens to a wildflower covered meadow with amazing views of Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP and the valley below where our cheeseburgers were readily consumed.  After a speedy descent, the first 2 miles for the day are under our belts.  A quick drive around the Green, and we were at the Faulkner trailhead on Mt Tom.  The trail switchbacks slowly up to the summit, however the 3 mile roundtrip was made in great speed – at least for a 5 year old, as GroovyGirl wanted the “girls” to beat the boys.  At times she was running up the trail.  The view of  Woodstock Village is fabulous from the open summit. 

All that speed hiking (as well as a growth spurt) made room for another cheeseburger.  The round trip total for Mt. Tom is 3 miles.  Total for the day 5 miles – now, time for a refreshing swim in the lake.
