This is a great short hike for a morning or afternoon. Trail maps can be obtained at the visitor center at the Notch on RT 116. Store staff of EMS Hadley recently re-blazed the white trail markers up to the Horse Caves on this trail. The Horse Caves are about 15 minutes past Mt Norwottuck and are a great rock formation where it has been said that tax rebel Daniel Shays hid during his rebellion.
The trail starts right behind the visitor center and follows the white markers of the M and M trail. It walks with the orange blazes of the Robert Frost Trail for the beginning. Keep an eye out for markers and arrows as the beginnig of the trail takes many turns to the base of the mountain. Views are beautifull of the Pioneer Valley on the top of Norwottuck before you desend a bit to the horse caves.
The Notch Visitor Center is on RT 116 and the trail starts right behind the Center. There are free trail maps there to take with you.
