Although the waterfalls are pretty small, best part about this state park is its trails. Parking lot is of good size to fit many cars.

We visited on a cold day in October. Had to pay $15...weekend? not locals? But worth it. The path along the falls is designed with several spots to look closer and take pictures and they don't interfere with photos from the other spots. Only when...More

Coming here during Fall gave it an even more magical edge. The park was pretty and the Autumnal leaves made it additionally atmospheric.

It's always beautiful, in every season. In the summer it offers a cooling spray from the falls. In the winter the falls freeze into wonderland vignettes. You can hike up the trail or enjoy it from the bottom. Either way it's worth a look.

Just about 7 miles down the road from the West Cornwall Covered Bridge is Kent Falls State Park. This gem of a natural beauty is very close to the roadway and cannot be missed. What you initially see are about 4 spills of cascading falls...More

It was pretty here and well maintained. It was a good spot for a short break on a beautiful day. Unless you hike the trail it takes only a few minutes to walk up to the Falls.
