Trail Notes

Mt Castor is located on Shays St in Amherst Massachusetts. The Mt Castor Trail is a short and easy 1 mile out-and-back hike to the summit and back; however, the summit is nothing special.

This GPS data includes the hike up to the trailhead and back, so the trail itself to the summit is even shorter. Plan for a 1 mile trip total.

Closest parking is at Crocker Farm School. Follow the blue dots (Ken Cuddeback Trail) to the trail head.

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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
