This is the starting point of the Metacomet - Monadnock Trail on the east side of the Connecticut River, which leads up to Mount Holyoke, Taylor Notch, and Mount Holyoke for a 4.4 mile out-and-back hike. This portion follows along the ridge leading to the Summit House atop Mount Holyoke. Stunning views of Springfield, Hartford, Holyoke, The Holyoke Range, Northampton and Amherst are available all the way to the Summit House. Taylor Notch is a short hike past the Summit House where the M & M trail intersects with the road to the top of the mountain.
This section of the M & M Trail, in its entirety, spans the Seven Sisters and ends at the Notch Visitors Center at the base of Bare Mountain.
