Little Mount Tom

One of the best places for scenic viewing in the winter months is Little Mount Tom

although only at an elevation of 600 ft., Little Mount Tom boasts some spectacular views of the Connecticut River Valley, Whiting Street Reservoir, the Ski Area, and the old Mountain Park area.

Little Mount Tom was also the only active volcano on the Holyoke Range, with a lava flow that went in a south easterly direction, making for great geological exploration.

In 2002, the Trustees of Reservations, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, The DCR, and the Holyoke Boys & Girls Club joined forces to aquire the land on Little Mount Tom and the surrounding Ski Area land, here’s a link for more info:
