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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
