The Kaybee Trail at Mt Tom State Reservation in Holyoke, Massachusetts is an easy 0.9-mile one-way trail that runs from the main parking lot next to Lake Bray and connects to the Keystone Trail. The trailhead can be accessed roughly 0.2-miles from the Lake Bray parking lot after hiking in on the Universal Access Trail (included in this trail map).
This one-way trail starts off heading northwest along the steepest section of the trail. While the climb is steady, the trail winds up and around many smaller ridges offering some views of the valley bellow. This trail is well maintained and should be considered highly-trafficked. There are two trail junctions - the first is where the Link Trail intersects with the Kay Bee Trail. The second junction is the Keystone Junction where the Kay Bee officially ends at the Keystone Trail.
Warning: It should be noted that all of the trails at Mt Tom are home to both copperhead and timber rattlesnakes; however, they're still difficult to find and don't often make an appearance on the trails.
Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out with the hiker.
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. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I 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.
