An easy 1.3 mile looped trail from Mount Tom Road. The hike can be extended by taking the trail to the Pratt Nature Center.

Mount Tom is a prominent topographic landmark that extends from Northville to Merryall in New Milford. In 1978, Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy acquired this forty-acre parcel and along with the New Milford Youth Agency created a spur trail to connect Pratt’s trails to a western access point. Over the years, Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy has acquired two major tracts of land and two easements totaling 134 acres. On the trail, one will see vernal pools and lofty tulip poplars in a fairly young forest.
