Section 4 of the Metacomet - Monadnock trail is end to end trail located along the border of Holyoke and Westfield. The road that connects to the southern trail head is closed, but it is a short walk to the trail head coming from Holyoke, you may may also park on the Westfield side for a shorter walk. The trail is short but steep to start and then follows the ridge along East Mountain providing views of the Barnes Airport and Western MA. The trail and areas surrounding the trails show heavy usage from ATVs but is still well maintained. There are several lookout towers and cliff faces for viewing.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
