Love this place, especially off season and mid week. Great short hike and amazing views! Saw a wedding at the base once, very cool.

We were driving through the western part of CT and just happened to come across this beautiful place Mother Nature provided. It is right along the road and completely visible from it. We were there mid week, middle of the day in peak fall foliage and there were three other cars in the rather huge parking lot. Felt that we... More

I drove for an hour to get to this park and there seemed to be quite a few people enjoying it. There was a line and half the people in front of me ended up leaving... I soon found out why. Admission was $9 and they only accepted cash. I had $4, could see the falls from the road. So... More

My wife and I stopped by the past Saturday and took the walk to the top of the falls. The scenery was beautiful and the walk was pleasant. There were quite a few people at the property as we were there the lot was probably 2/3 full but it did not feel crowded. There were a lot of people having... More

I enjoyed my second visit to the falls.I drove up through the beautiful New England towns. It was pretty crowed since it was a Sunday. During the week it is better if you like to take photos. Also you don't have to pay for parking. The foliage was lovely.The falls wasn't as forceful as it was last year since we... More

I've been in this park two times and the last time was yesterday. I like the view, the falls and the covered bridge near the parking lot. We walked all across the white and the red trial with gorgeous views of the falls with our five years old boy (it tooks about 30-40 minutes in total) easy and beautiful. A... More

It is a small mountain, but the falls down the side are great. You can walk up to the top and around both sides of the falls. You have to pay for parking during the summer.

Not too steep walk up and around the falls that starts at a covered bridge. Bring a picnic and make it a relaxing day to enjoy nature.

Yes it's expensive, yes the small parking lot fills up quick and yes, they are letting a beautiful remodel job of several years back fall apart, but it's still a beautiful series of waterfalls with a really nice trail to the top with several observation decks. A great place for photos of the kids and of the falls themselves. The... More
