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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time ๐Ÿ•ฆ, money ๐Ÿ’ฐ, and effort (including espresso shots โ˜•) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free ๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!๏ธ
