The Bear Hole Reservoir Trail in West Springfield, Massachusetts is an easy 2.6 mile loop hike that runs around the Bear Hole Reservoir.

The trail is a gravel access road that is accessible to all skill levels. There are only a few views of the small reservoir along the trail, but the trade-off is a beautiful waterfall with a very large old stone chimney beside it in the northwestern section of the loop.

Biking and dogs are both allowed on this trail.
