We visited at the end of fall foliage and the view was beautiful from the top. Plenty of parking and trails, even around a lake. The tower is not for someone afraid of heights, it's stable but you can see through the steps. Our 3 and 6 year olds had no issues. The path was dry but it can be... More

Just a little walk, perhaps 2 miles, but did get to climb two observation towers, and the views were nice.

We enjoyed our car ride then walk up to the observation tower. Beautiful day. A lot of hikers use this area for strength building with a bonus. The view is spectacular💕 Don't attempt if you are not ready or able to climb.

Our group had lunch across the street and made quick trip up the mountain to see the foliage. It's an interesting place and great scenery with a tower to climb for the views in all directions. I don't like heights, but made it up. The pictures I took made my friends look like ants it's so high. We laughed and... More

Mt Tom is always a great place to go for a hike or picnic or whatever. Several different ways to get into the reservation.

Great place to ride, walk or jog. Pretty nature preserve with lots of woods and some water. Been visiting this place for many years.

What do a B17 Memorial and Dr. Seuss have in common? This hike!!! One way to access the following sights is via the paved service road starting on the Holyoke side at the base of Mt Tom. However, don't let the pavement fool you, this is a rigorous ascent, but well worth it. Just before you reach the summit there... More
