The Fort River Trail at the Silvio O Conte National Wildlife Refuge in Hadley, Massachusetts is an easy 1 mile loop hike along a gravel and boardwalk trail.

A lot of the trail runs along a boardwalk, so it's handicap accessible and great for kids. There are benches every 10th of a mile or so, so you can sit down to enjoy the views or eat lunch.

Nothing special, but just a really nice hike through the woods in Amherst.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Tocra's notes put this trail in Amherst, even though it is properly listed as being in Hadley. Please edit this discrepancy. And thanks for everybody's hard work on this site!

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! ✌
