Rattlesnake Knob

Rattlesnake Knob can be reached by many trails or combinations of trails (Ken Cuddebank, Metacomet Monadnock, Robert Frost, Brookbank, and several others). Many of these trails are not on Alltrails. The Skinner & Mt Holyoke Range State Park trail map from DCR (available at the Notch) works fine.
It can be easily accessed by hiking mostly on the Robert Frost trail from the Notch, by the Metacomet Monadnock trail (via Mt Norwottuck and the Horse Caves) from the Notch, or can be an easy one hour 3 mile loop hike from several trailheads on Bay Road. The most straightforward route is the Ken Cuddebank trail (blue blazes) from Bay Road.

There is a view to the East of Long Mountain and a view to the North, but nothing remarkable. It's very buggy!
