This trail is a 1.5 mile loop hike in Belchertown, MA and is well maintained and lightly trafficked. It runs between Federal St and Rt 9 along an old rail road line. There is a red blazed loop along the eastern half of the trail and dips down to a small brook.

You can also start on Cheryl Circle and follow the red blazes from here back up to Federal St.

The trailhead on Federal St. is a little tricky to find. Park at the entrance of the wide gravel driveway next to the guardrail. The trail begins just to the right, up a hill. When the trail splits, go to the left. And when you come out on Cheryl Dr. at the halfway point, walk a few paces to the right to access the other half of the loop. (There's a large gully separating the two halves of the trail.)

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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
