Ascent Trip Report

Entered 10/19/2019.

A hike with Hari to Mount Tom. We started at Northampton and made our way south to Mt. Tom State Reservation via Old Springfield Road and the rail trail adjacent to East Street. We then entered the state park at Underwood Ave and made the relatively quick ascent up to Nonotuck. The Eyrie House ruins were a neat feature near the summit as well as an observation tower. The plan was to follow the ridge to Mt. Tom and descend to Route 141.
