The Whiting Street Reservoir Trail is an easy 3.8-mile loop trail located within the Mount Tom State Reservation in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

The reservoir is nestled into the side of Mount Tom and provides views of the summit at the end the lake. A portion of the trail follows along side the cliffs that divide the reservoir and the summit access road. This is a highly trafficked trail but worth it the views.
