Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike explores Mount Holyoke, an early tourist mecca offering an exceptional panorama from the Summit House, an 1800s mountaintop hotel. On your way up, pass the Devil’s Football, a geological formation.

Stop at Halfway House to view the engine of New England’s first mountain tram. Next, steeply climb to the restored Summit House. Break off from the crowds. Pass more vistas and then trace a mountain stream en route to the trailhead."
