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. This section of the rail trail is 2.8-miles out-and-back and runs through Belchertown connecting Warren Wright Rd to Station Rd in Amherst.

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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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! ✌
