The Mount Lincoln Trail near Belchertown and Amherst Massachusetts is an easy 1.7 mile out-and-back hike up to a radio tower in the middle of the woods on UMass property at the Cadwell Memorial Forest.

The trail climbs up a hill to where UMass' WAMH-FM station broadcasts. Even though it's UMass' property, they do allow day hikers and bikers on their trails.

There's a lookout from the top of the tower, but signs prohibit climbing the steps.

Do not park in front of the service gates, you will likely get towed.

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!
