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

Viewing Towers

Visitor Ctr Tower, cropped

Overlooking Westhampton and beyond is the Visitor Center Tower. A second tower is to the north on Goat Peak. Both are ideal for watching hawks and other migrating birds, where thousands ride updrafts along the ridge in September. Access is via the parking area rear of the Visitor Center. Reach Goat Peak by way of the New England National Scenic Trail ( NET ). Near the Visitor Tower sits a memorial stone and plaque to Roy Goodreau, deceased Department of Conservation and Recreation employee whose commitment to the reservation is much appreciated.
