Kent Falls was a nice experience for a picnic styled day during my visit to Kent, Connecticut. The views of the Falls are very nice, as well as the wide land extension that can accommodate many visitors (Big Parking Lot as well). Truly a relaxing experience.

I loved this State PArk. Lots of Trails and Beautiful areas to look over at the over 100 Foot waterfall. BRING BUG SPRAY, lots of gnats and flies.

Kent Falls is a little out of the way for casual tourists, but it's one of those places where locals like to hang out. Near to the utterly charming village of Kent, Kent Falls has a large area for picnics (and it includes fixed grills if you want to bring your food with you). The falls themselves can't be seen...

Wonderful cascading atwerfalls with a renovated walkway to the top of a long trail of many falls. Go during the week less crowded. Lovely stream alongside the trail. A few geocaches hiddenint he area

We stopped here en-route from NYC to Manchester VT. Lovely waterfalls and open area with picnic tables and plenty of parking, toilet facilities were basic but clean. We visited on a Tuesday, there were no charges in operation.

My wife and stopped by here for the first time yesterday after hiking in Warren and enjoying a lunch in the pretty town of Kent. There is a fairly steep parking charge of $9 for CT residents and $15 for out of state. Hopefully the money goes for upkeep of the park, not into the black pit of CT's general... More

Kent Falls offers a pleasant area to picnic and hang out, and a short hike. The hike goes up the south side of the falls, across at the top (the last bit isn't well-signed; just keep going), and down the north side. The north side is less well maintained. Although small, the falls are exciting because the drop is dramatic... More

We visited the falls before you had to pay $15.00 to park. Te falls are pretty but not worth that kind of money unless you plan on spending the day. The walk to the falls took only 20 minutes, round trip.

This is the second time we visited this spot with friends and family. It was worth the visit. The drive to the falls is beautiful. The fall looks amazing. Our kids had a lot of fun. My 2yr old son was not ready to come out of the water. There are no restaurents, only one lady selling ice cream. We... More
