This is the entrance to the Rail Trail (unfinished dirt path) in Belchertown, Massachusetts, which spans from George Hannum Rd to Hamilton Street; however, the GPS data provided does not reach Hamilton Street. The trail is shared with snowmobiles during the winter and well maintained. The local BMX riders have a small area back here for jumps and the like as well.

Parking: You can park along the road by the gate to the baseball field parking lot if the gate is closed. If the gate is open, you can park in the lot.
