  • Mt Tom is always a great place to go for a hike or picnic or whatever. Several different ways to get into the reservation. 
  • Really cool view, I wish the trails were fixed so they weren't as slippery to climb on, I wouldn't mind if it was supposed to be a pure hiking trail but it's advertised as easy enough for the elderly and it most definitely isn't if I was slipping with hiking shoes and being as young as I am
  • Very good choice of trails from simple flat loops for mobility challenged people to a few medium level syeep climbs for people who want a bit more challenge. Not nearly as busy as some other parks which is a good thing.
  • One of my favorite spots in the Connecticut Valley. Mt. Tom is home to an incredible biodiversity, including parasitic 'ice' plants. Trails are generally easy and the view from the fire tower is incredible.
  • Huge range of trail difficulty. Lots of intersections allow you to customize your hike to the length and difficulty that you want. Unbelievable views from the Mt. Tom summit and all along the trail leading to it.
  • A great hike for the views over easthampton. Quick and steep with great bang for your buck if you start on the roadside on 141
