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.
