Hudson Brook Chasm


Hudson Brook Chasm is a beautiful waterfall located in North Adams, Massachusetts. The waterfall has a total height of 25 feet and it can be found along Hudson Brook. Hudson Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Hudson Brook Chasm is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of an old marble dam which then flows into a series of cascades and small plunges. 

Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Natural Bridge State Park which features a well-marked trail system and many bridges. Visitors can park at the end of McAuley Road and then walk a few hundred feet to the falls. The waterfall is a lot of fun for families considering how easy it is to access and view. Thankfully, dogs are also welcome to explore Natural Bridge State Park and the waterfall.
