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.
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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.
Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
