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

Nature Trail

East of the former Robert Cole Museum, along the New England National Scenic Trail is the 3/4 mile loop called the Nature Trail. It is family friendly and self guided, aided by trail blazes and informational signage about species-rich micro-habitats, old growth trees, mountain top views, interesting geologic features, and a nearby abandoned 18 century quarry. Volunteers are needed help with this trail as well as those throughout the reservation’s 22 miles of hiking trails. Want to help? Contact the park superintendent at 413-534-1186.
