The Goat Peak hike at Mount Tom State Reservation in Massachusetts is a moderate 2.4-mile out-and-back hike that leads to a beautiful vista point - Goat Peak Lookout.

This route runs along the T Bagg Trail before merging with the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail (M & M trail) before reaching the vista point..

The top has a lookout tower on one side and a cliff on the other. When the T Bagg Trail ends at the M & M trail, turn left to head towards the peak. Then go right to the Eyrie House ruins, which is about 0.7 miles after the junction.

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

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. 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.

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! ✌
