The Harkness Brook Loop Trail is an easy 0.8 mile hike located off of Stony Hill Rd in Amherst, Massachusetts.
This is a small loop trail behind the houses of the quiet Stony Hill community. The woods are open and a popular spot for locals. There are several unmarked trails to provide both longer and shorts hikes.
This recording starts along Stony Hill Rd which enters along the Robert Frost Trail (orange blazes) which leads to the loop; however, the trailhead to the east, on Harkness Rd, provides the most direct access to the loop. Parking can be found at the trailhead for the Robert Frost Trail at the marker provided.
