Great trail! Marked clearly. Beautiful forest setting. Really cool rock sections, pseudo mountain passes and great views on both summits. Definitely will do again!

Give yourself about two hours for this hike in current conditions (icy, wet leaves). You also summit Mt. Norwottuck as an added bonus. However, after the summit the trail gets a bit confusing just stay left and you will eventually find the markers again. Too slippery to take the white route back I took the orange route home and it was much easier. Pretty view. Cool trail

Fun trail did 4.4 miles. Peaks would be beautiful on a nice sunny day.

Very pretty trail with a few nice views. Did the challenging white route out (moderate) then did the orange trail (easy) back. Mostly well marked. Would hike again.

Great hike that follows the Robert frost trail from visitors center off Rt 116 up to Rattlesnake knob overlook. Then shoots back over to the Horse caves and up to the peak of Mt Norwottock. From there you take the M&M trail down back to the visitor center. These trails are very well marked and easy to follow on the map. There are some steep rocky areas along the way. This loop has some awesome views. Great hike and will definitely do this one again.

Good easy hike. Trail was not well marked though. Could see how someone without a trail map would get very lost

Great alternative to the Mt Norwottuck summit which can get crowded, especially in the summer. Beautiful views, fewer people!

Very frustrated with this trail. Not enough signage. I’m an experienced hiker and got lost a few times. Some cool views though. Also not great for dogs - some rocky areas and big bolder.

This was a great trail, but it was very hard to find. It was at 473 Bay Rd, but it was off to the left on the driveway. It was a yellow trail, but there is no sign at all on bay road or at the start of the trail. We ended up parking on south middle street. There is no good parking area since the one parking area that we saw had “No Trespassing” signs every 50 feet. However, once you get on the trail, you walk up the yellow trail for a while until you hit the red, white, and blue trail. There are also some trails that go to the notch visitor center, and one that goes to Mount Norwottuck. Beware, there are not always red, white, and blue blazes on each trail. After you get to what looks like the top, you can take the blue trail (to the left) to get to two beautiful peaks! This is a very good trail overall, and I highly recommend it!

The beginning was a little confusing. Blasting zone signs almost veered us away from the trail. Good hike, nice views of Amherst.
