If you are traveling with a family like we did, the shorter trail should be nice. Just follow the fence for about half a mile until you get to the small overgrown path leading directly to the river. If you did not bring a swimsuit, you can still take off your shoes and wade into the water or find a rock to sit on and relax. A great hour-long stop.

Along the General Lafayette Trail, Route 143 West, you will come to the center of Chesterfield, Massachusetts. Just past the town hall, there is a normal looking side road, Ireland Street, and up a bit on River Road a small parking lot. It's hard to believe what's down the rocky hill from it. A natural wonderment. Steep rock ledges and cliffs wind as far as you can see. Too bad it's a little hard to walk on the paths and it doesn't afford a more expansive view. But, it's worth the side trek.

High above the river gorge is a pathway to walk and explore. It is steep for kids and you need to be careful. But it is so beautiful and natural that it is worth a look see. Bring a lunch, sit and enjoy!

Rushing boulder strewn creek, falling yellow leaves, a mossy primeval forest and a vigorous walk. This short outing added a special dimension to our fall weekend in New England.
