Dogs (leashed)


This hike leads from Hockanum Rd, up Taylor's Notch Trail and merges onto the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail before reaching the summit of Mount Holyoke.

The hike is moderate and is 2 miles out-and-back. This is one of the tallest mountains in the valley, but is mostly a moderate hike with about 750 feet of elevation change.

Biking and dogs are allowed, but plan to bring plenty of water as there aren't many water sources while climbing this mountain, unless in the early spring.

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! ✌
