We came on a Wednesday morning at 9am. By the time we left around 11 it started to fill up but we only saw 1 couple and 1 family the whole time on the trails. We really enjoyed the falls which were beautiful and the peace of no one there. I don't think we would have enjoyed it as much... More

We have hiked this a few times. Once as a couple and a few times with our kids. It's perfect for either.

Since we were driving along the road, the nice looks called for a quick stop, and the easy hike up the trail to the waterfall was easy and rewarding. Since it was a Monday, we were pretty much the only ones there besides Maintenance, I think that the day before must have attracted a larger and merrier crowd.

I have to say we expected more from both the waterfall and the hike, simply based on reviews we had read. The hike is really just a walk up the side of the hill following the river and the waterfall and takes about 20 minutes. The falls are nice to see, but I wouldn't call them overly spectacular. It is... More

Water was barely flowing into the Falls so nothing really to see in mid-July. Definitely not worth the $15 parking fee we were charged. Try to check water flow levels b4 you go.

The hiking trail doesn't look like much from the parking lot. Once, you get going its actually a nice hike up along the falls with plenty of picture opportunities along the way. There are a few options to come back down, we followed the red trail. The yellow is longer but not along the falls. Bring bug spray and a... More

It was a Sunday afternoon and that feeling that I wanted to go somewhere. We have chosen Kent Falls State Park in Connecticut. Just about one and a half our away, thru Route 7, this park is a oasis of peace and relaxation. Is a relative small place with waterfalls and picnicking features, as well with hiking trails and fishing... More

The State of Connecticut needs to be applauded for making such a beautiful and easy accessible park.The falls are a very short walk from the parking lot. Bathrooms and park were very clean.Nice spot for picnicking and or barbeque.

Well maintained, well attended park. Kids playing in the water, people picnicking and hiking around - overall the idyllic country weekend destination for everyone. On nice days get there early to secure a table and picnic spot.
