About the Hike:
A loop trail takes you around the beautiful cascades of Chesterfield Gorge. The trail begins as a wide dirt path through the forest. It slowly travels downhill until it reaches the brook. There, it forks, with one side crossing the brook on a bridge. We recommend completing the loop in the counterclockwise direction. The trail is fenced on one side, as there is a steep drop into the gorge. There are many cascades in the gorge, the tallest of which is 18 feet. At the end of the loop, the trail crosses the stream again and heads uphill. This side provides a view of most of the cascades.
