Terrill Gorge

Terrill Gorge

One of Vermont’s most beautiful natural pools and home to a healthy cold water fishery, this area has been a longtime favorite with neighbors and visitors. That’s why, when new landowners started mapping a subdivision, threatening to cut off public access to this special place, neighbors called Vermont River Conservancy to step-in. Today, an easement here makes sure these 10-acres will never be developed and that people will always be able to enjoy this beautiful gorge.
The brook has high quality cold-water fish habitat that contains wild, self-sustaining populations of brook trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout. Hemlocks and birches surround the waters of the gorge, and there are rapids, riffles, potholes and water-smoothed rock with several popular swimming areas.
From the parking area, there’s an approximately 1/2-mile walk to Kenfield Brook. The first swimming hole features a gravel beach, making it a great spot for younger swimmers to splash in the shallows. Or, rock hopping upstream, get to a series of pools and cascades. Please do not jump from the slippery cliffs above the pools.
