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.
