The Jabish Brook - Springfield Water Supply Trail in Belchertown, Massachusetts is an easy 2.3 mile out-and-back hike that leads from N Washington St (next to the overpass) over to Mill Valley Rd (Rt 181).
To properly find this trail from the parking area or the trailhead, make sure to follow the trail that leads north from the trail that runs parallel to the train tracks. If you end up following the train tracks, you're heading in the wrong direction. About 0.35 miles into the hike, the trail hits a fork; however, both sections of the trail lead to the same place and run parallel to each other until they reach Mill Valley Rd. Once you reach Mill Valley Rd you can head back along the same trail, or hike back on the parallel trail.
Parking for this trail can be found on N Washington St just south of the overpass. The trailhead can be found by the parking area and along N Washington St north of the overpass as well.
