This trail is stunning! Lots of pretty forest and some nice outlooks! The trails are not marked very well, so offline map is handy. In some seasons, it can get icy in some spots, so micro spikes highly recommended. Show more

This trek starts at the defunct Mountain Park which was a turn of the century amusement park. The course leads you around the fenced-in park and up to the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail which is part of the New England Trail signed off by Obama a few years ago. There was a nice waterfall this day as the rain has been steady. One trail option is up the old Mt Tom ski trail, you can see the old ski buildings which are in a state of disrepair. Once on top the white blazed trail leads you across the Mt Tom MM trail with stunning views of Easthampton below. Keep going to Deadtop then the Mt Tom summit before heading down the paved road by the B-17 Memorial site. A Flying Fortress crashed here on return from Grandby, Newfoundland. All aboard were sadly lost. Stop and pray for those young boys, their lives cut short. Return via the reservoir with beautiful views of the Mt Tom and the ridgeline you just hiked! Enjoy!Show more
