Join us for a day hike to Mt Tom located in Mt Tom State Park in the Holyoke Range in Western Massachusetts. We will hike to Mt Tom via the New England Trail and return via the New England Trail to the D.O.C Trail to Whiting Peak and down the Quarry Trail. We will also hike to Goat Peak via a loop going up the New England Trail and down the Beau Bridge Trail. The hike is 7.5+ miles with 1,371' of elevation gain and we will hike at a moderate pace. The trails are steep and depending on conditions you may need full crampons.

To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
