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.
