My son and his Dog are always up in these mountains and I enjoy it when I am visiting, as well. The fall foliage was so beautiful!

We only had time to drive through the reservation, no hiking, but you could do it for hours and hours.

Or to go to a music show. Some of the old structures are still standing from when it was mount tom. it's cool to see that. Nice hike, roads are still kept up and can walk to the top.

What a great park with many walking trails! We enjoyed a not-too-long walk to the lookout tower that offered a great panoramic view of the rolling surrounding hills! Free parking during the off season.

Mt Tom falls under the state park rules. Nothing in these rules prohibit metal detectors, but they do not address their use, either. If all you want to do is scan the playing fields and camp sites for (lost) articles, then... More

Mt. Tom has always been a day only state park. With that, there are not a lot of camp sites in the immediate area. There is a campground at the state park in Chicopee, and camping at the DAR state forest in Belchertown. Try... More
