Get yourself moving on one of my go-to workout trails in the area: the Faulkner Cardio Trail. Starting from the pleasant Faulkner Park, this trail winds up the south face of Mount Tom in 14 gentle curves that go to the South Peak. We'll pass beautiful stonework, rock outcroppings, and benches on our way to the plateau with a lovely view of Woodstock Village. After a rejuvenating yoga stop, we'll head up the last 100 yards of rock outcroppings to victory at South Peak. You can event touch the Star that is turned on during the holidays!
A bit of history: this trail was built by Marianne Faulkner in the 1930s in memory of her husband. She wanted to emulate the cardiac rehabilitation trails of the famous German spas where people from all over the world came to take "The Cure." Cure yourself with this beautiful, mildly-challenging trail and the power of yoga. To register, please use this link. $25 event fee payable at the hike. Hope to see you there!
