The Bare Mountain Trail is a difficult 1 mile out-and-back trail on the Mount Holyoke Range with a lookout that sits 1,014 feet above sea level. From the top, you get sweeping views of Amherst, Hadley, Sunderland, Deerfield, and parts of Belchertown and Pelham.
The trail is moderate to hard, but it can be difficult for some people. There area various sections that are steep and require hiking up and down some rock edges.
Parking can be found at the Notch Visitor Center and there's a crosswalk that connects the parking lot to the trailhead for the M & M trail / Bare Mountain Trail / 7 Sisters Trail. Follow the white blazes until you reach your first mountain summit. Follow the trail north until you find a rock edge with the overlook.
If you wish to continue exploring the top of the Holyoke Range, you can hike the entire 7 Sisters Trail (due-west to Mount Holyoke) once atop Bare Mountain or continue for just over 1 mile due-west to the top of Mount Hitchcock along the Mt Hitchcock Trail.
