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.

Before you leave...

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

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
