The Chesterfield Gorge Trail near Chesterfield Massachusetts is an amazing short 1.5 mile out-and-back hike that leads to the Chesterfield Gorge and waterfall.

You park right on the top of the gorge. A trail snakes along the ridge looking down on the gorge and a dirt road leads down as well about 1.5 miles which can be driven or walked. There are plenty of great fishing spots along the gorge as well with massive boulders to sit on.

The Chesterfield Gorge is one of the most dramatic waterfalls in the region. Best of all, the 70-foot falls plunge is just a short walk from the parking lot.
