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

Rte. 141 Reservation Entrance


Entering the Route 141 gate to Mt. Tom State Reservation, a stone structure built moons ago, brings you to Christopher Clark Road.  In route to the overview on Nonotuck Point, at the far reaches of the reservations, you will pass other scenic views including that of Mount Greylock to the west as well as the Ox Bow of the Connecticut River and UMASS/Amherst to the north.

Currently your hiking adventure cannot begin shortly after passing the check-in station, as the Fire Road Trail, a mile-pluse path leading to the Visitor Center and nearby viewing tower and trails is closed because of a microburst.

On October 8, 2014 a ten minute microburst on the Easthampton side of Mt. Tom leveled  large oak and pine trees, burying the Fire Road Trail.  So dangerous and costly is the effort to clean up the trail, little has been done to reopen the trail.
