This section of the Ken Cuddeback Trail in Amherst, Massachusetts an easy 1.1-mile out-way located off of Potwine Lane and runs to Middle Street in Amherst.
This trail should be considered easy but is very wet during both Spring and Fall seasons, which can make the hike a bit more challenging. There are several bridges and planks but many sections of the trail do not include these. The trail crosses several small tributaries that flow from Plum Brook. Deer and turkey activity is high in this area as well. Hunting is allowed in part of the middle portion of this trail and in the field to the east (Simmons Farm Conservation Area), so wearing blaze-orange is advised.
Parking: Parking consists of pulling to the side of the road - there's no official parking lot.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
