Located within the Mt. Tom State Reservation. Kay Bee trail is an out and back trail located within the Mt. Tom State Reservation. In order to access the trail you need to follow the accesstrail and then there will be signs to the Kay Bee. This is primarily out and back as it comes to the intersection with the Keystone Trail. It is 0.7 miles to the junction with the Keystone trail. There is a long ascent in the beginning. It can be very muddy and buggy after the rain.

Fun hike, title is a bit misleading though. It's the kay bee trail to the keystone extension to the d.o.c and m-m trails. The kay bee is only about 1.8 miles of the 7 miles it takes to complete this. Beautiful views to the west, not so much the south (maybe Hartford on a clear day) or north. Nothing could really be seen to the east.

After hiking in the morning on the Robert Frost in the Mount Holyoke Range State Park which was very muddy due to all the recent rains, we hit this trail. I was not expecting such a steep and long incline! Overall it was a decent trail, not my favorite on Mt. Tom, but decent enough!
