This short portion of the Robert Frost Trail is an easy 2.5 mile out-and-back hike located on Station Rd in Amherst Ma next to the Norwottuck Rail Trail.

The trail is usually very wet and over grown during warmer months, but clearly traveled. The first portion is not very fun, but it opens up quickly with many plank bridges over the wet terrain.

It winds north and spits out onto Woodlot Rd - from here take a left and follow the road a short distance where the trail picks back up on the right-hand side of the road. This next portion slips between property lines for about a tenth of mile and is well maintained. The trail then spits out onto Teaberry Lane where you have an option to cross the street and continue on the trail itself as it weaves behind several houses and comes out on Wildflower Drive or turn left onto Teaberry for a more direct route where the trail picks back up on Wildflower.

When the trail resumes again on Wildflower, continue north towards Rt 9, over a few gentle hills beside Pomeroy Pond. Officially the trail comes out on Old Belchertown Rd and picks up across the street for a short section to Rt 9; however, there are no clear blazes and the trail seems to loop or meander into private property. The best option is to either turn back or walk down Old Belchertown Rd to Rt 9 and pick the trail back up there.

Parking: Parking is provided at the entrance to the Norwottuck Rail Trail. Head west over the rail road track to the trailhead.

Before you leave...

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

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
