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.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
