  • It is so worth it to climb all the way up. We walked on the road because the hike in the woods was too steep. Once you get to the summit house, the view is just breathtaking. They have like a small museum, bathrooms, picnic area and a water fountain. If you prefer to skip the walking you can go up in your car. They have plenty of parking.
  • Skinner mountain offers great views of the Pioneer Valley, Holyoke river, and the mountain ranges to the north. You can drive up to the top of the mountain after paying a $5 national park fee ($10 for out of state) or you can hike up the mountain from any of the numerous marked hiking trails. At the top you will be greeted with beautiful views as well as the historic summit house which is free to enter. There are plenty of park benches, picnic tables, and grassy areas to enjoy a lunch or picnic while soaking up the scenery.
