Terrill Gorge


Terrill Gorge is a stunning gorge, waterfall, and swimming hole in Morristown, Vermont. The gorge is a half-mile-long canyon with walls that can reach 100 feet straight out of the water. At the lower end of the gorge is the waterfall, which is often referred to as Terrill Gorge Lower Falls. There is an upper waterfall, but it is not easy to access.

Terrill Gorge falls has a total height of 8 feet and can be found along Kenfield Brook. Kenfield Brook features pretty good water flow year-round. This makes the waterfall a great spot to visit on any day of the year. The waterfall itself drops in a unique block formation which fans out across a small rock apron before dropping into a good-sized pool. This pool is an excellent spot to swim as it is deep and clear. There are also some rocks that locals have been known to jump from into the pool. 

Accessing the waterfall is super easy. The waterfall is located on public land owned and maintained by the Vermont River Conservancy. There is a dedicated parking area for visitors to the gorge near the end of Duhamel Road. This parking lot can hold about 10 cars and offers direct access to an extensive trail system. The trail to the waterfall runs parallel to the western edge of the brook and it is about 0.40 miles. Ultimately, the walk out and back to the waterfall is 0.80 miles and features very little elevation gain. This is a great kid-friendly and dog-friendly spot to explore!
