When I found myself in Northampton with an afternoon to kill, and not particularly good weather, I took a look at the Wikipedia page for the town. Fairly far down the list, I noticed that the Oxbow in the Connecticut River is just outside of town. I've known and admired the Thomas Cole painting for quite some time, so I... More

Our daughter had a spectacular experience for 4 years at this small women's college. Somehow they manage to foster a climate that is both intellectually challenging but also very supportive, tons of excellent women role models & speakers, strong sense of community, acceptance & encouragement of diversity. Don't let the small town fool you, there's a ton to do in... More

I love running in this area, especially around the college. It's always beautiful, in my opinion, but nothing compares to it in the fall. Take a tour of the college - lots of history!

We chose to park 1/2 way up and walk up. Delightful climb (1/2 mile or so up) and fantastic views at the top. Plus there are clean bathrooms at the top. Definitely worth the hour or two. And for those who can't walk - drive up to the top and just walk around the deck on the house at the... More

First to correct Tripadvisor, Mount Holyoke is actually divided between the towns of Hadley and South Hadley and most of it is in Skinner State Park divided between those two towns (the official address is in the town of Hadley, though large parts of the park are also in South Hadley) and not Holyoke. Next, on to the review. Mount... More

Just off of Rte 47 a few miles out from the Mt Holyoke college area, also accessible on Rte 47 from Rte 9 in Hadley in the reverse direction, this was a great place to take a quick hike in the woods with gentle climbing to reach a spectacular view of the Connecticut River Valley. There is also a road... More

The campus and buildings are wonderful. The Science Building is a very unique place. The walk along the falls is a very nice walk, also the greenhouse.

The Skinner Summit House is arguably one of the most enjoyable and accessible hikes in the Pioneer Valley. There are a number of trails one can take to the summit, or there is also a road that is accessible by foot year 'round and open to motor vehicles weather permitting. The views of Amherst, Northampton, Holyoke and surrounding towns are... More
