Nice easy walk/hike. There is plenty of up hill walking, but gradual.The tower views at the top are worth it. There are marked trails off of the trail of you are feeling adventurous. Dogs allowed, but must be in leash.

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.
