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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
