The Scott Tower Trail at Anniversary Hill Park in Holyoke, Massachusetts is an easy 1.8 mile out-and-back hike through a once-popular park. There are several loops and trail options to choose from, but this GPS recording starts off on the main access road before heading onto the outer-most trail in the northern section of the park. While this is and out-and-back hike, it's really a lollipop hike with a spur that leads to a loop.
Along the hike there are a few lookout points, an old stone bridge and staircase that date back to when the park first opened in 1940, and Scott Tower.
Note: The park is no longer maintained, so hike at your own risk. The park is moderately-trafficked, so you'll likely see other people here, but it can give off a strange vibe due to it not being maintained.
