The Eyrie House Ruins Trail is a 2.4 mile out-and-back hike up to the hotel ruins of the Eyrie House and the summit of Mount Nonotuck in the Mount Tom Reservation in Massachusetts. Follow the M & M trail (white blazes) from the trailhead listed on the map to the access road. Once you reach the access road follow it up the mountain and it will lead to a lookout and the entrance the Eyrie House Ruins. Continue following the trail and it will bring you to the summit of Mount Nonotuck.

The Eyrie House was a hotel that burned to the ground in 1901, but was a popular destination in the 1880's up until the fire. All that's left now is the ruins of the old hotels, but this is a really awesome hike and a hidden gem in western Massachusetts.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Please note that this trailhead and parking area is located on a residential street. All hikers must respect the private owners and neighbors located next to the trailhead. If parking cannot be found at the trailhead due to a crowded day, please stay off of all private land and find a public place to park.

We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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.
