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section with a staircase that has a sign that the trail is closed but it is only for the staircase and appears to be outdated.
