A super group of people like you helped make it possible for outdoor adventurers like me to ride the Accessibility Trail here in Mt. Tom State Reservation, Holyoke, MA. Thanks to people like you a smooth and fun-to-ride trail now extends along Lake Bray to the new 55 foot bridge behind me that they built. I’d love to be able to chair-ride with friends all the way around Lake Bray. With help from you and your friends, me and mine, we can make it happen. Want to know more? E-mail me at

The deteriorating former Mount Tom Ski lodge, outbuildings and nearby land, is owned by Holyoke Boys and Girls Club. The club has  yet to restore the facility and it appears there are no plans to do so.  Look to the day when this facility is brought back to life with programs and recreational activities. This view is from what was the main ski slope. Most of the ski area is now owned and maintained for passive recreational use by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. A documentary video, going further into the story of Mount Tom, as well as the ski area, is in the making.  Image courtesy of a friend of the Mt. Tom Range.
