The Jan Dizard Loop Trail is an easy 1.1 mile hike located within Lawrence Swamp in Amherst, Massachusetts. There's a small area for parking (one or two cars) by the trailhead on Station Rd next to the creek.
You first start off by following the orange blazes of the Robert Frost Trail 0.15 miles into the woods where it merges with the Jan Dizard Loop. The loop trail is marked by red blazes and can be slightly confusing since it's next to the Robert Frost Trail's orange blazes.
The trail gently winds through the woods along Hop Brook and loops back by old farm fields. This is indeed a swamp, even during a drought season it is still wet and buggy, but still pleasant.
