Dogs (leashed)

This 1.5-mile moderate unmarked trail is located on Old Mill Lane in Granby, Massachusetts and heads to the top of Bare Mountain in the Mount Holyoke Range State Park. The trail itself is about 3-feet wide and appears to be used as an access trail into the park.

The trail starts off gently but quickly becomes very steep with only one notable switchback for a short pause along the way up to Bare Mountain. Loose trap rock dominate the vast majority of the trail making secure footing challenging for the hike back down, so trekking poles can be handy here. Eventually, the trail brings you to the bald southern-facing summit of Bare Mountain with views towards Springfield, MA.

Hike just a bit further to the north lookout point atop Bare Mountain, with views of Amherst, before hiking back down.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Parking: There is a small area to park and a clear entrance to the trail at the parking marker provided.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
