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

Warming Hut

Warming Hut, 7-27-11Looking out over Lake Bray is the Warming Hut, a throwback name dating from the original hut when ice skating and fishing was and still are popular. When ice conditions allow a rink is plowed for groups to play hockey or just skate about. In the warm months the area around is ideal for picnics and play. Across nearby Cascade Brook is parking and a popular starting point for hikes. Close by is a Kiosk highlighting facts about animals, birds, and has a trail map box. The hut remains open year round. Bathrooms too.
