The Yellow & Red Blaze Loop Trail at the Black Stevens Conservation Area in South Hadley, Masschusetts is an easy 0.9 mile hike along a couple different trails in the park. The trail is located by the field next to the Plains School, so you can find parking here and hike in along the Yellow Blaze trail, which is also known as the Main Trail. These trails are perfectly maintained and there are many side trails to turn around and go just about anywhere you want. This trail follows along a small gorge before looping back towards the school.

Blazes to follow: This hike follows the Yellow Trail (Main Trail) initially before turning left onto the Plains School Trail (Red Blazes). Continue on the Red Blaze trail until you reach the Yellow Blaze trail again - take a left, heading west, at this intersection. Continue on until you see a right-hand turn for the Yellow Dot Trail (also known as the K & N Trail). Head Back on the Yellow Dot Trail (K & N Trail), which will turn back into the Main Trail to get back to parking.

More info: Check out the attached trail map picture for this trail, it should make following the trails a bit easier.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
