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.
