This recording is of the southern portion of the Mt Tom Traverse which follows the M & M Trail through the park. It also includes a portion of Reservation road from the northern trailhead to the exit of the park on Route 5.

The trail is highly trafficked but offers many views along the way. It starts off with a very steep but short climb up Mt Tom. From the summit you can see Springfield, Barnes Airbase, Westover Air Force Base, and Easthampton.

Following along the white blazes north, the trail skirts along tall cliffs peering down on Easthampton and the Route 141 entrance to the park. During the winter months it can get very icy on trail and during this recording it was very slick and muddy, ice spikes are highly recommended. The trail breaks on Reservation Rd where you can choose to turn back or continue on to Goat Peak and the Eyrie House Ruins.

Distance: The trail is only 2.6 miles one-way from the southern trailhead to the northern trailhead along Reservation Road. If you want to hike this out-and-back, you can plan for about 5 to 6 miles total depending on how far you continue along the M & M Trail beyond the northern trailhead.
