We didn't get to spend a lot of time at this park, but we drove through a few times while we were in Holyoke for a wedding. There was a nice little lake and beautiful scenery. There were some nice pull-outs that allowed you to look over the area. This would be a nice place to visit and spend more... More

You shouldn't miss this drive if you are in the area. The vistas are beautiful and surprising. The overlooks take your breath away. It's not a long drive but so pretty. You can stop and picnic or climb the observation tower for a stunning view. There is no charge it's just about making time to do this and you won't... More

My go to spot for a quick dose of nature hike. Very scenic and lots of trails to explore. Occasionally encounter unleashed dogs. Most owners are responsible but remember every dog does NOT necessarily like every other dog.

This is one of the best local treasures we have. Whether you want to hike, watch kids on playground, enjoy the views or sit by pond Mt Tom has it all. Make your way up to Goat Peak and overlook the Pioneer Valley or drive up to Eyrie House (or whats left of it). Pick up a trail map before... More

I live in the area so going for a run or hike on the mountain is the perfect thing to do all year round.

We visited at the end of fall foliage and the view was beautiful from the top. Plenty of parking and trails, even around a lake. The tower is not for someone afraid of heights, it's stable but you can see through the steps. Our 3 and 6 year olds had no issues. The path was dry but it can be... More

Just a little walk, perhaps 2 miles, but did get to climb two observation towers, and the views were nice.

We enjoyed our car ride then walk up to the observation tower. Beautiful day. A lot of hikers use this area for strength building with a bonus. The view is spectacular💕 Don't attempt if you are not ready or able to climb.

Our group had lunch across the street and made quick trip up the mountain to see the foliage. It's an interesting place and great scenery with a tower to climb for the views in all directions. I don't like heights, but made it up. The pictures I took made my friends look like ants it's so high. We laughed and... More
