Snake Mountain is located on the border of Holyoke and Westfield Massachusetts. This trail leads up the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail south from 202. The trail splits near the base of the mountain, offering a loop to the lookout without having to miss anything along the way. The entire hike is 2.2 miles out-and-back and the hike is easy to moderate considering the total elevation gain of slightly over 400 feet.

The trail is very wide, but since the area sees a lot of atv/offroading traffic, it's often ripped up. There are also signs of hill climbs everywhere which does seem to add to the experience by offering several short routes to the summit. The summit offers views of Barnes Air Base, Hampton ponds and Mt Tom to the north.

Dogs are allowed on this trail.
