Meet at parking lot; walk along trail next to the gorge until the trail meets the road. Walk on dirt road about 4 miles downstream. Have lunch next to the Westfield River, then return by same route to the parking lot. Some minor elevation gains on the road - maybe 50 feet maiximum. Road is mostly tree-shaded.
