This tiny connector trail at the Puffer's Pond Conservation Area in Amherst, Massachusetts is a 0.2 mile one-way hike that connects the top of the H. H. Jackson Trail to the Robert Frost Trail and is an easy way to wrap up a short loop hike at Puffer's Pond. At the beginning of this trail is a small overlook, during colder months, when no leaves are on the trees; however, it's nothing special. You can see UMass and the Holyoke Range through the trees before heading downhill towards the Robert Frost Trail. There are no blazes to follow.

You can also park on Pulpit Hill Road where the H. H. Jackson Trail ends/begins.

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! ✌
