Location mapSummary
Mt. Toby is one of many nice, moderate hikes near the Amherst area in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley. While the ground level views from the summit aren't that great, a quick climb up the firetower reveals a panorama.

Used mainly by UMass's Forestry Department, there are many trails throughout the reservation for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

The summit was once home to a hotel. The mountain was briefly considered for alpine ski development in the 1930s.

1,269 feet
