Turn right at the sign for the North Peak/Precipice Trail. Now the trail becomes a singletrack. At the next intersection, take the North Peak Trail. Meander through the forest to the next intersection, the one less traveled trail. Turn left. Continue to climb until you reach the North Peak Trail again.
Turn left and continue climbing until you reach the Billings Trail. Turn right to continue following the North Peak Trail. There is a very limited view at the top of the North Peak. Look for the sign leading to Mount Tom Road. Follow the trail to Mount Tom Road. Turn left on Mount Tom Road and follow the road up to the South Peak Overlook. Stand at the South Peak Overlook and enjoy the amazing view!
Next, look for the Faulkner Trail and make your way down to the valley below. Be careful at the top, it is very steep. Follow the switchbacks down into the forest. When you reach the bottom of the trail turn left onto Mountain Avenue and enjoy the beautiful homes in the neighborhood.
Turn left on River Street. Run past the cemetery and look for the sign that will lead you back to the visitor center in the national park. Turn left and run up the very steep carriage road.
