The Mount Hitchcock Trail on the Holyoke Range near Amherst Massachusetts, is a moderate to difficult 2.7 mile out-and-back hike from the Notch Visitor Center up to Mount Hitchcock and back.

Park at the Notch Visitors Center. Follow the M & M trail across the street and up Bare Mountain, there are several lookouts on the way up and at the top. From there continue on down the backside of Bare Mountain.

The trail is very up and down. There is a small section with a staircase that has a sign that the trail is closed but it is only for the staircase and appears to be outdated.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
