Goat Peak Lookout Trail is a 1.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Holyoke, MA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
Simple, straightforward day hike. It won't take you long but the views at the top are amazing! Great to pack a picnic, sit on the cliffs and watch Western MA from above :)
Finally climbed the tower. Definitely worth it! Great views of the Holyoke range and the Seven Sisters.
I did this trail funny combined it with the m-m trail and another trail was about 6 mi that way if you hop onto the m-m trail you can go to the Eyre house ruins and there are several beautiful views along the way
Nice little trail for after work exercise or something if you're local, but nothing to go out of your way for. I am about 10 minutes away and my son and I will race up the trail. As one of the other reviewers said, you come through this peak when taking the M and M trail across the Mt Tom range which is definitely worth the trip. You get a pleasant view of Easthampton from the bench and a nice view towards the Seven Sisters from the tower. Great day hike if you have adventurous little ones. Not sure where the tracking shown on the map is going, but it's certainly not Goats Peak.
Hiked goats peak today first hike of the year. Great views very easy more like a walk than a hike but im sure thell get better as the year goes on
We hadn't hiked to Goat Peak just for Goat Peak but rather hit this lookout while doing a section hike of the M&M trail through Mt. Tom State Reservation. There is a small area at the lookout with two benches. The view is very pretty but not all that impressive in comparison to other areas on the reservation.
