The Gold Street Trail near Belchertown and Amherst Massachusetts is an easy 1.9 mile out-and-back hike through woods owned by UMass. Near the end of this GPS section of the trail is a building owned by Umass - you can turn around here for 1.9 miles total or continue on for another couple of miles.

The trail continues on for another 2 miles or so and hooks up to the radio tower on the Mount Lincoln Trail.

This property is owned by UMass but they allow hikers to walk the trails. Dogs and biking are allowed here, but do not park directly in front of the service gates - you will get towed.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
