Description

Bench and scenic view on Mount Pollux.

Edward Hitchcock described Mount Pollux, and its twin, Mount Castor, as a "small, rounded eminence, which is cleared and opens from its top one of the most lovely panoramas which nature has formed. All around you is a cleared valley and beyond this rises a wall of beautiful mountains ; on the east the Pelham Hills, on the south Norwottuck and Holyoke, on the west the Hoosac ridges, and on the north Mettawompe, Mount Taurus, Sugar-Loaf, and far off in the north-west some of the peaks of the Green Mountains. (Reminiscences of Amherst College, 1863)
