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.
