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.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
