The Link Trail at the Mount Tom State Reservation is an easy 2.2 mile loop trail located off of Reservation Road in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

From the trailhead the trail runs up and down over several small ridges in a southwest direction for the first mile of the hike. The trail can be somewhat tricky during Autumn when the leaves have dropped and cover many loose rocks, but overall the trail should be considered easy difficulty.

After 0.31 miles the trail takes a wide turn around a spur trail and cuts back up after 0.2 miles, bringing you to the top of a small valley. From here the trail continues on along to the Lost Boulder Trail. From the boulder, head south and down the hill to the Bray Loop Trail. From the Bray Loop Trail head northeast, there are 3 ways back to the Link Trail trailhead - the Keystone Trail, the Kay Bee Trail and Reservation Road. Both the Keystone and Kay Bee Trail are both considered easy from this direction and are entirely uphill, but recommended nonetheless. Reservation Road will also take you back the trail head, along this route there are some great cliff and water features.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
