Gunn Brook Falls


Dogs (leashed)

Water Source


The Gunn Brook Falls Trail at the UMass Mt. Toby Forest in Sunderland, Massachusetts is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back hike featuring two waterfalls. This hike is extremely short and is great for families with little kids.

Waterfalls: The main attraction on this trail are the two waterfalls - each waterfall is about 15 feet high and 6 - 8 feet wide. It's best to visit the waterfalls after a spout of consistent rain, in the early Spring, or in the winter when the waterfalls are frozen over. In the Summer you may find Gunn Brook a bit more dried up.

Parking: Parking can be found at the coordinates provided with a small parking turnout that can accommodate a couple of vehicles. In the winter, if Gunn Cross Rd is covered in snow, you can park at the intersection of Falls Rd and Gunn Cross Rd (without blocking the road) and hike up the road for an additional 0.1 mile one-way to the trailhead.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.

Water source: If you have a water filter, you can refill in Gunn Brook.
