H. H. Jackson to Robert Frost Spur Trail

0.2 Miles

Dogs (leashed)


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.
