This section of the Robert Frost Trail at the Mill River Conservation Area in Amherst, Massachusetts is an easy 0.8 mile out-and-back hike along Cushman Brook. The trailhead can be found across the street from Puffer's Pond with a small parking lot that can hold a few cars.
The trail is considered fully accessible, the first portion, before the foot bridge, is gravel and just beyond is still very smooth. Just before the railroad tracks the trail becomes very steep before it crosses the tracks. From here it follows along the side of a ridge which has views down into Cushman Brook. Along the brook you can see small cliffs and old foundations.
