We visited on 25th Jan'15 and drove from Stamford. The drive was absolutely pleasant as we took the Long Ridge Road & I 684. We passed some beautiful hilly towns on our way. 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

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
