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.

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! ✌
