At 47mi in length, the Robert Frost Trail is one the five longest trails in MA. It spans 10 towns from South Hadley in the south to Wendell in the north. This page details section #7, running between the Amethyst Brook Conservation Area to Pratt Corner Rd. in Amherst. Most of this section is lightly-traveled, except for the Amethyst Brook area, which features picturesque brooks and bridges and sees many dogwalkers. The guide describes the section as "rugged, wilderness-like" and rightfully so. The summit of Mt. Orient, about halfway through, provides limited views south and west. Dogs are allowed. Mountain bikes are allowed only between May 1st through October 31st.Show more
