The Mount Tom Trail in Holyoke, Massachusetts is a moderate 2 mile out-and-back hike up the access road to the summit of the mountain. Depending on the day, you can drive up to the access road which is where this GPS data starts right off of Mt Park Rd in Holyoke. If the gate is closed you will need to walk about a mile to the access road.
At the top of Mount Tom, you get amazing views of Holyoke, Springfield, and the Holyoke Range. On the hike up, there's a monument dedicated to the servicemen who were lost in a B-17 plane crash on the mountain on July 9th, 1946.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by 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.
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! ✌
