Ascent Trip Report

A trail hike northbound from Hwy 141 ..... 2.2 miles, 1h20 hours TR.

I climbed northbound on the M&M trail from the TH parking on Hwy 141, located 1.8 miles north of I91, exit 17, across the hwy from the Holyoke Animal Hospital. I ascended in 40 minutes and descended in 27.

The summit is capped with a huge Communication Complex, a few dozen Towers and a large brick building. I chose my HP at the rock outcrop west of the brick building, GPS 42.24163,-72.64843. Great views in all directions.
