Ascent Trip Report

Easy enough six miles from Easthampton Road in Holyoke, MA to Underwood Road in Easthampton, MA. 15 minutes from Northampton or Springfield. Trail is well maintained and well travelled. The walk across the ridge-line is as nice as views get in the "Valley". Didn't bother walking down Route 5 to the boat ramp just to say I ended at the river. Will pick up the M&M on the other side of the Connecticut River on Route 47 in Hadley.
