In Hadley, within the J. A. Skinner State Park is Mt. Holyoke. On top of Mt. Holyoke is a sign with a state park cancellation station.

The cancelation pictures a hilly feature with several peaks, a building on the right most peak, some clouds, and a hang glider.

Mt. Holyoke is the peak with the hotel on it. The hotel, called the Summit House, is still standing, but it is boarded up and mostly inaccessible. It is being worked on and is said to be open to the public in by the end of the year.

The sign that the station is on is located somewhat away from the hotel. From the parking lot, go right of the hotel toward a picnic area. The sign is at a bend in the path.

There was no charge to go up the auto road. There are places for donations, however.
