The Mount Hitchcock Trail on the Holyoke Range near Amherst Massachusetts, is a moderate to difficult 2.7 mile out-and-back hike from the Notch Visitor Center up to Mount Hitchcock and back.

Park at the Notch Visitors Center. Follow the M & M trail across the street and up Bare Mountain, there are several lookouts on the way up and at the top. From there continue on down the backside of Bare Mountain.

The trail is very up and down. There is a small section with a staircase that has a sign that the trail is closed but it is only for the staircase and appears to be outdated.

Before you leave...

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! ✌
