West Branch of the Westfield River: Bancroft to Huntington Professional Review and Guide

"This eTrail includes two sections of Massachusetts' Westfield River - West Branch: Bancroft to Chester and Chester to Huntington. If the rocks in the river are covered at Bancroft, expect a roller-coaster ride below. However, if they are somewhat bare, a fair amount of maneuvering will be called for in several spots. Most rapids are followed by pools.

In several places the channel is quite narrow, so fallen trees could be a real hazard, especially at higher levels. A railroad follows the river, but there are no roads close by until the Middleville Road approaches near the end, so the trip is somewhat isolated. This trip is rated class III–IV depending on water level. This lower section of the West Branch is somewhat wider and has less of a gradient than its upstream counterpart."
