If you enjoy open views then this hike is for you. There are countless views nearly the entire time.
Steps from the former hotel, which stood at Mount Tom's summit.
An incredible west facing panorama from Mount Tom's 1202 foot summit.
The trail soon drops off the summit, but continues to follow the cliff tops for quite a while.
My next stop was the Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation located only about 2 miles east from exit 24 off of I-91 at the intersection of Route 116 and Sugarloaf Street. There is a toll road that vehicles can take to the top of the mountain, or a small parking lot allows hikers to climb the mountain for free. Steps lead away from the parking lot and bring you to a small board with trail maps available. This mountain, while short in stature(652 foot elevation), is big on views.
Hiked about 1 mile RT at Sugarloaf and 6.2 miles total for the day under sweltering heat.
