I couldn't find the trial head, likley because I didn't have this app then. I parked on bay st. and walked up a long dirt road that had no tresspassing signs every 15 feet, trail head was on the right a half mile up. it was a really great short hike,I saw tons of snakes!

There’s no scenery at the top and it’s a pretty easy loop. The trails aren’t marked well and my phone died and I thought I was completely lost for 2 minutes. I was terrified. First world problems. It’s away from any houses though so it’s a good trail for dogs off leash.

beautiful views!

Nicely settled trail, not as great a workout as I thought it would be. Trail was also not marked well at all and being there were side trails
Off the main one we were on, it got confusing. Other then that, was a pretty easy walk. Trail took about 40 minutes.

first time using the "all trails" app so still figuring out how to get the most of it. Map from the site and from the actual spot was a little unclear where to go. Felt like we walked in circles and definitely not 4miles. Also didn't see any caves. Will have to return when more seasoned with the app.

Great thanksgiving morning hike with family and 3 dogs. Great view from 1st summit and over the other side the Horse Caves were very cool. Now I'm ready to eat some turkey!

A good 1 hour hike around the roller coaster loop trail. A lot of good mountain biking trails we could see and many divergent trails. But using this app made it no problem. Dogs liked it.

I walk/hike here every weekend. The hike is short, 50-60 minutes. The elevation is mild. Aside from some old stone walls, there isn't much to look at. My dogs like it.

This area is part of the Mt. Holyoke Range. Most people use it for mountain biking, but there are all sorts of ways to hike it. There are no vistas, but there are some nice sights. Mountain bikers enjoy the technical challenges many of the trails offer. There is a map at the trail head. I usually take my dogs there.

I've never used a map or GPS to find my way around because the mountains run east to west and the main area is bounded on the west by power lines. The main trail forks maybe 1000 feet in. The left fork takes you up to a pond. This pond is fed by and empties into a brook. There are at least three bike-accommodating bridges across it: one to the north of the pond; two to the south. This is an easy walk, maybe 20 minutes up. If you take the first left, 250-500 feet in, you get more of a hike. You'll come across the remains of a stone cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps back in the Depression. Keep working your way north and the power lines will be on your right. This trail will eventually loop back.

These trails are very popular, especially in the fall. They connect to the Notch, if you take the right paths, but they aren't overcrowded as the Notch area often is at this time of year.

Ran this trail with a pup one evening after work -- not too heavy with traffic and well marked. The lookout at Rattlesnake Knob is stunning on a clear day... I'll definitely cruise this route again. Oh, and there's a nice stream about .75mi in for the pup to cool off (especially on the way back down).

Super easy trail as far as physical ability goes... But completely unmarked past the starting point, and not at all tended. Very messy, which made it hard to stay on the trail. Good for a nice walk in the woods, though.

Rattlesnake Knob can be reached by many trails or combinations of trails (Ken Cuddeback, Metacomet Monadnock, Robert Frost, Brookbank, and several others). Many of these trails are not on Alltrails. The Skinner & Mt Holyoke Range State Park trail map from DCR (available at the Notch) works fine.
It can be easily accessed by hiking mostly on the Robert Frost trail from the Notch, by the Metacomet Monadnock trail (via Mt Norwottuck and the Horse Caves) from the Notch, or can be an easy one hour 3 mile loop hike from several trailheads on Bay Road. The most straightforward route is the Ken Cuddeback trail (blue blazes) from Bay Road.

There is a view to the East of Long Mountain and a view to the North, but nothing remarkable. It's very buggy!

It was a nice peaceful hike!

Wish I saw Matt Kline's comment in time. I followed the directions on the site and ended up staring at some marshland wondering where the trail was . . .

Came via the M&M to RK. Small area beautiful view of Long Mtn. I think if I simply came here to hike to RK I would have been disappointed simply because of how small the lookout area is. My husband and I are section hiking the M&M so this a quick stop on the way back to notch visitor center.

What an excellent hike. Some places make you huff and puff. I recommend the white marked trail because it brings you to 1100 feet of great nature to make you feel invisible. All in all we came, we saw, we ate garlic.

A great hike especially if you're looking to take it a little easy. Moderate on the way up, following the M-M trail and then several options for a meandering stroll back through lovely forest.

This was an amazing hike. From the multiple beaver ponds (and all the beaver chewed logs, to the horse caves, to the most breath taking views from the tops of the mountain. I had such an amazing day. I would recommend this hike to anyone looking for a moderate to demanding hike.
