2.8 Miles Easy
The Norwottuck Rail Trail is a 11 mile (one-way) flat paved trail that runs point-to-point from Belchertown MA on Warren Wright rd to Northampton MA.
The trail passes through Amherst College which allows easy access to Amherst center. It also passed directly behind the Hadley mall and various shops along route 9 on the way to Northampton.
There are plenty of trails that lead to/from the rail trail, so it makes getting on and off of it easy.
Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed.
This trail's distance will increase to 22 miles out-and-back as I complete the whole trail over time.
