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.

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!
