The King Philip's Stockade Loop at Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts is an easy 0.5-mile paved path that passes through a small section of Forest Park.

The trail is wide, paved, and is highly-trafficked. There are plenty of old growth trees along this route, but it would be a much nicer walk if it were not located so close to Interstate 91.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Biking is permitted along the trail.

Parking can be found at the intersection of Columbus Ave and Laurel Hill Rd at the coordinates provided. The parking lot is located directly across the street from the trailhead.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
