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.
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. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I 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! ✌
