Description

Park on the side of the road where the MM trail starts. In about a minute, you'll pass the Mount Holyoke cabin, stay to the right and follow the obvious trail. Once you find the ridge, it is easy to follow, except for a couple places where you drop down into lower areas. Just follow the MM blazes and you'll be fine.
