The Wentworth Conservation Loop Trail is a 0.8 mile hike in Belchertown, Massachusetts across the street from the Holland Glen Trail. This short, seemingly-hidden trail, is oddly popular for its location. The trail is labeled as part of the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail that cuts from Orchard Street in Belchertown to this location, then up through Holland Glen and over to Mt Lincoln; however the trail is not maintained through this section, so driving up Gulf Road is recommended to get back on the M&M if you're looking to thru-hike the M&M.

The trailhead for the loop is located not far from the trail entrance by Hop Brook, just past the small bridge. The loop crosses the railroad tracks and continues up a small hill. The top of the hill does not offer much of a view but is a nice place to sit since there's a picnic table here. The trail also splits with 3 options, one way continues the loop. There is a red dot trail that starts here and likely connects to the Red Dot Loop off Federal St. The other trail is unmarked. This trail is well maintained and fairly popular it seems, even in the colder months with snow.

Parking: Parking can be found directly across the street on Route 9 at the parking area for the Holland Glen Trail, so be cautious crossing the road as it's located on a corner where cars dive by close to 50mph.

Blazes: The blazes are marked Yellow in one direction and Blue in the other. Most trees share the dot on either side of the loop.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
