Dogs (leashed)

The Yellow Dot Trail at the Palmer Wildlife Management Area in Palmer, Massachusetts is a difficult 1.2 mile out-and-back hike on Route 67 near the Warren border. The trail is a bit of mess with plenty of fallen trees and it's not marked very well, so navigating your way back can be tricky. The peak, where this GPS track turns around, provides some views of Warren, Massachusetts through the trees when the leaves are not on them; however, there's likely nothing to see from this point when the leaves are on the trees. In the winter, there may be some ice-flow on a nearby rockface along the hike too. Dogs are allowed here.

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!
