Descent

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.

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!️
