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.
