The Mill River Conservation Area is located in Amherst Ma, behind Mill River Recreation Area/Park on Montague Rd. The main trailhead is located at the far end of the baseball fields - you can walk through the fields or along the river on the right hand side of the park.

This trail offers several bridges that cross the river and some smaller tributaries. The path is wide and well worn, and a very popular trail for dog walkers. There are several side trails leading in and out of the conservation area. The trail can be used as a loop or continue on to the Robert Frost Trail or the H.H. Jackson Trail. This section of the trail ends on Mill St by Puffers Falls, there is a bridge under construction but is usable. Take the road right to the Robert Frost Trail or left to the H.H. Jackson Trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
