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.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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.
