The drive to the falls is beautiful and the falls themselves are lovely. You can climb up stairs to the right of the falls; handrails are available. When the rails end, you can continue your hike and then either come back down the same way or go down the opposite side of the falls. It is a nice hike. Large... More

Remember the TV show "Who's the Boss?" Remember that house? Yeah, that's what Kent, Connecticut actually looks like. And Kent Falls is the jewel of the area. Stunning at any time of year, Kent Falls State Park provides a quiet retreat for picnicking and hiking, set against the backdrop of 250 foot Kent Falls. Well worth an afternoon visit.

We came in the winter, the falls were partially frozen and absolutely stunning!! The trails provided nice areas to walk/hike. Have been back several times while we stay in CT for three months.

When we reached, there were 2 cars in the parking. By the time we left it was almost full!! Its a beautiful place with the water half... More

We started our trip at Kent Falls State Park, arriving at 1:00pm. The park offers fishing for trout, though limited to 2 per day per person, an awesome and large picnic area, covered in snow when we were there, complete with grills, a covered bridge and an old school open bridge across the stream that has just descended the hill...

Hiking outside afterwards was WONDERFUL . From 5-55 Loved it. The falls are magnificent and such an easy day trip. You can even take a picnic from the restaurant if you want and do that!

Beautiful scenery. Climbing the stairs alongside the cascading falls provides a good workout. There are other trails, a covered bridge over the brook, picnic tables and a large field.

We got off the beaten path to see the falls. It was a great photo op and also quiet and relaxing. Worth the time to stop and see.

Oh this place is absolutely lovely! Views are gorgeous and you'll find you'll get a lot of walking done going up the stairs to get a better view of the falls. We didn't do a hike when I went but I did see some trails while we walked to see the falls. Be sure to bring your camera to snap... More
