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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
