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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
