Mount Tom dominates the center of Woodstock. It's 1,250'. If you are fit, it will take you about 30 minutes to reach the top. It is well worth the trip.
There are two ways up, an easy way from behind the mountain, and faster one from the center of town.
The easy and longer way is to drive out of Woodstock on Route 4 and turn right just after the Woodstock Farmer's Market. Follow the road up and over a hill and you will come to a parking lot on your right.
The fastest way is to set out from the park on Mountain Avenue, behind the covered bridge. The ascent will take about 30 minutes depending on your level of fitness. The climb is easy and well worn. Near the summit, the going gets a little tricky but there is a guide wire to hold on to as you negotiate your way over some rocks. Wear a good pair of boots.
Once you are on the summit, you will see most of the village laid out before you.

Meet Your Hosts
"Come Relax..leave the rest to us!"Michael and Cindy Scruggs, owners of the Quechee/Pine Valley KOA, did what many of us want to do: changed their lives from the hectic pace of corporate America to a nature-based lifestyle. “Now we have the hectic life of operating a campground, which we much prefer,” says Cindy.
Michael and Cindy have been avid RVers for years, as Michael spent 30 years as an executive in the marine industry and Cindy was employed as a licensed real estate agent in Florida. As business professionals, they know what it means to provide exceptional customer service. “We want to exceed our customers’ expectations. Our goal is to make the Quechee/Pine Valley KOA one of the top mid-sized KOAs in the country, by providing great customer service and a top-notch facility. We would like our campers to tell their friends that this is one of the finest campgrounds they've stayed at and recommend us to all their friends,” says Michael.
The Scruggs certainly are achieving their goals: their campground was awarded KOA’s highest award – the Founder’s Award – every year since they've owned the campground. The reason? They treat their campers with the utmost care and work every day to make sure their campers needs are met.
When they do find spare time, Michael and Cindy enjoy traveling, boating, scuba diving and motorcycling.
