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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
