The Blue Blaze Trail at the Reed Conservation Area in Belchertown, Massachusetts is a short 1.4 mile out-and-back hike from the southern section of the conservation area up to Knight's Pond and back. Parking for the Reed Conservation Area can be found on Gold Street at the coordinates provided and is located across the street from Trillium Way in Belchertown.

The trail is mostly flat, with a short downhill section at the beginning that leads to a small pond with a couple of picnic tables at the pond. Once you reach the picnic tables, take a right to follow the blue blazes. You'll eventually reach an intersection where the blue blazes turn right one more time - follow the blazes to reach Gold Street again, just south of Knight's Pond. You can hike back on the road, the Blue Blaze trail, or the Red Blaze Trail to make the trip a total of about 1.4 to 1.5 miles depending on which way you go. If you hike back on the Blue Blaze Trail, you can take a small short-cut on the Orange Blaze Trail to save a couple of minutes; however, the Orange Blaze Trail will likely be wet during most seasons and icy in the winter.

Rather than just go out and back on the blue blaze trail, I did a loop. All the other trails were in fine condition. I cut off that one corner, but would go back and do the two sides of the triangle. The trails are wide and clear for the most part. Just be mindful of the horse droppings!

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. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
