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.
