Hike to the top of Pony Mountain, then cool off with a summertime dip in the chilly waters of the brook's picture-perfect pools and falls.

Beautiful trails, going up the hill to a great mini-view. You pass by a natural rock wall, perfect for rockclimbing. Go the other direction on the trail and you come to the falls. In the summer, it's great fun to splash in small swimming holes....More

Visited the falls which were nice but also did the (less than a mile) hike around/over/and down Pony mountain. The longer trail around the back of the mountain is pretty tame. The steeper "climbers" trail was a well constructed descent along the cliff. Nothing too...More

Falls are gorgeous. If you are going to slide and play in the pools, be sure to check for leaches. Several were found in the water. Luckily none were attached.

Chapel Brook Falls, a series of semi-major and semi-minor plunges, reveals itself only a couple of hundred yards from a country lane. There's parking on the side of the street and a trail that dips down to the falls on the other side of the...More

This is a beautiful natural setting with a cascading waterfall with several deep pools at different levels. It's a very nice place to just relax and explore.

Beautiful. Semi-secluded. Hike first, then drip in ice cold but fantastic water and waterfall. Dip in a pool or slide into it from a natural rock waterslide--with care! Not for everyone but truly magical in the heat of summer.

Nice easy hike, with kids or pets. There are great spots to stick your feet in the water for a quick cool down, and lots of places to sit in the shade and listen to the sounds of the brook as it trickles by. Lots...More

This is a short hike from the parking area to the base of the lowest falls. I arrived fairly early and had the entire place to myself. As the sun rose, the leaves lit up with color and the falls looked amazing. While I don't...More

Even though I've lived in Western MA my whole life, I had never checked out Chapel Brook until recently. It's beautiful! There are many options for trails- you can hike to the Bullit Reservation, or to DAR, or hike up to the summit to see...More
