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.
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. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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.
