Comments
Comments: This was a fantastic way to access Mt. Tom! Bit longer due to Zealand Tr.( nice warmup and cool down). A-Z Trail is easy on the feet and gradual up to the last pitch. Great stonework and bog bridges. The woods are lovely and you see some angles of sites you don't normally see. Trail was dry at this time but have read it can be very wet which the evidence showed. Great day out with Karen.
