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. 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! ✌
