The Rattlesnake Gutter Trail in Leverett, Massachusetts is a lightly-trafficked, easy, 1.7 mile out-and-back hike through the little-known gorge of Rattlesnake Gutter. The trail leads through the gorge with a small stream that runs along the bottom of the gorge. The gorge features massive boulders and cliff faces that are known in the area for some of the best rock climbing. The cliffs are privately owned and off limits without a special permit for rock climbing; however, there's a local organization that works with the land owners to allow rock climbers to practice here.

Some of the cliffs have overhangs and caves - some sport graffiti, unfortunately, but are cool nonetheless. Rattlesnake Gutter is a very unique hike for the Amherst and western Massachusetts area. The trail itself is mainly wide and flat with gates at both ends of the trail where you can park. Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.

Before you leave...

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

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
