Excellent spot to get away!

Growing up close to Mount Tom, we regularly hiked this trail as well as the rest of Sibley State Park! This hidden gem offers great views and the ability to immerse yourself fully in the outdoors!

Love

Its a great view, especially in the fall, when the leaves are turning. You truly can see a very long way and it's a nice, peaceful place. The tower was recently redone with more safety enforcements.

Local Favorite

I wouldn't say it's a summit, it's a short hike from the parking lot up to mount Tom. The trail that circles mount Tom is a great hike. Rolling hills, ponds and beautiful views make it a great place to spend a few hours. The camp grounds are recently updated with two areas to choose from, one down by lake Andrew and the other based back in the woods. There are also horseback riding trails that are beautiful and easy to ride. A great state park!
