Chaffee Falls Trail
View Connector Trails
From the intersection of Route 7 and VT Route 3 south of Pittsford Village, go north on Route 7 for 0.5 miles to Furnace Road. Turn right onto Furnace Road for 1.4 miles to its intersection with Hitchcock Road. At the intersection leave Furnace Road, which turns to the right, and continue straight ahead on Hitchcock Road for 0.7 miles. Look for a rough gravel road on the right with a sign "Pittsford Trails - Chaffee Falls Trail." Turn onto the land for 100 yards to a parking area. Park in the parking area. Start your walk from either side of the parking area.
Trail meanders through a mostly wooded area and along Furnace Brook with views of the Chaffee Falls and the rapids below. There are a few relatively steep areas. Follow the round, white trail markers with the green arrows. The route is a loop that can be traversed in either direction.
