At more than 1,200 feet in height, Mount Toby looms over the middle Connecticut River Valley offering outstanding panoramic views to those who make the six-mile trek on a moderate hiking trail. There are shorter hiking trials within the state forest as well. Related geologically to Mount Sugarloaf, Mount Toby features cliffs, caves, waterfalls, wetlands and open fields. The state forest is owned and managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and is considered part of the Connecticut River Greenway State Park.
One of the best views of Mount Toby from the byway is at the Deerfield-Sunderland Bridge over the Connecticut River on Route 116.
