Mononatta Road Trail is a 1.8 mile loop trail located within Forest Park in Springfield Massachusetts. Heading north from Pecousic Drive the trail starts off paved and shifts to gravel. At the fork you have the option to go straight or turn left over a small foot bridge. The right-hand turn is not well maintained - often overgrown and very wet - this section appears to be very popular with local wildlife judging by the amount of tracks. The trail can be hard to follow since the path is not well maintained. You will eventually arrive at another fork by a brook - turn left to continue the loop. At this point the trail opens up and is clear of overgrowth.
Once you reach the top of the ridge, another fork will point you back down the ridge as the trail weaves its way over various small lookouts and returns you to the first foot bridge near the beginning of the trail. The upper portion of this trail has several extensions and offshoots but the main trail is easy to follow.
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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
