Mount Tom State Reservation Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Tom, one of the state’s oldest reservations (established in 1903), lays claim to an unparalleled view of the Connecticut River Valley, the Berkshire Mountains, and the Pelham Hills. This 2082-acre reservation offers twenty miles of hiking and walking trails for endless hours of fun for you and your dog. In addition, Mount Tom is one of the premier hawk-watching spots in New England.
Hundreds of them can be seen on a good day. Red-tailed hawk, Cooper’s hawk, American kestrel, peregrine falcon, and northern harrier are some of the migrating raptors. October is fall foliage time, and the views at Mount Tom are absolutely amazing for taking in all the colors."
