Metacomet-Monadnock Trail to Mt. Norwottock summit

Mt. Norwottock is a faily easy hike on the Holyoke Range. The hike's ascent is much like a Red Sox season - slow to start, a steady rise, then a series of dips before reaching the summit. Nonetheless, there are nice views from both the summit and a ledge just south of the summit.
