A great hike for anyone willing to do some steep climbing! We went down when we got to the peak instead of turning back around. It brought us to the paved road at the park entrance and we walked to the car from there. Great views all along!

I was pleasantly surprised by this Mount Tom. I figured it would be a quick in and out. The initial trail is pretty short and not too difficult. Then you keep going. the trail raises and falls, this makes for a solid workout. The trail snakes along the Ridgeline and gives you some sun, breeze, and decent views of Northampton and Holyoke. watch out for Trap rock! Hawks soaring overhead are always a plus

Steep incline that caught us off guard, but it was a great hike for a short amount of time! With fallen leaves during autumn it’s pretty slippery! The views are amazing.

Short but steep trail with a good view from the top. There are a number of other trails and turns on the way, so I would highly recommend using the app to stay on trail.

Beautiful views all along trail. A little risky due to rocks and cliffs. But all around pretty sweet hike!

Fun mountain. It’s consistently steep but also very short. If you can do a half hour on the stair climber you won’t have any problems. Nothing technical or any real rock scrambles on this side of the mountain.

Technical and beautiful!

The hike itself was great but I could care less about the structures at the top. Views were awesome with your back to the cell towers, etc.

Great views! Parked at Mt Joe then went straight up being careful not to step on a rattlesnake. Cool basalt rock everywhere. Found myself at the para-sailing jump-off point and watched one dude sail away...very cool. Then went to search for WWII B-17 crash site and memorial and found that down paved road that was once the cable car railway. Great history but unfortunate end for 25 American servicemen. Came around the southeastern side on my descent to catch a nice sunset. So excellent!
