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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
