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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
