Robert Frost Trail, Hadley

Directions: From Amherst center, take 47 south. The trailhead is several miles up on your left. There is a parking lot and a pavilion.

Trail Information: Trail, which is thirty miles long, begins behind the pavilion (follow the signs) and traverses rolling terrain through several towns. It passes through both conservation land and private land, and most of it is very runnable. Some spots are steep but short. Excellent run in the fall.

Miscellaneous Information: Try running the entire thing in one day. Have someone drop you off and pick you up at the start and finish. Take a camel pack and some gel and bars.
