Trail Notes

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Note: The park is no longer maintained, so hike at your own risk.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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
