The Highmoor Trail at the Rice Nature Preserve is a moderate 0.7-mile out-and-back hike located in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. This trail is classed as easy though there is notable elevation gain, hence the moderate difficulty.
The first section of trail has plenty of small boardwalks and bridges to avoid mud and water, but seems to go without them the rest of the way. During the wet season, the rest of the trail is very muddy and can be difficult to stay dry on.
The trail starts off at the end of Highmoor Drive and quickly heads up into the Wilbraham Mountains and the Rice Nature Preserve before heading back to parking after just over a quarter-mile.
Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.
