Daniels Brook Chasm is a beautiful waterfall located in Lanesborough, Massachusetts. The waterfall has a total height of 25 feet and it can be found along Daniels Brook. Daniels Brook flows strongest during the springtime when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Daniels Brook Chasm is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of horsetails, slides, and cascades.
Accessing the waterfall is moderately difficult. The waterfall is located in the Pittsfield State Forest which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park in the lot along Potter Mountain Road and then hike 0.5 miles one-way to the falls. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in. Dogs are also allowed on the trail and through the entirety of the 11,000-acre Pittsfield State Forest.
It should be noted that the trail to the waterfall is not always well-maintained. When visiting in fall 2022, many trees were down on the trail.
