We thoroughly enjoyed this place. It is a beautiful and peaceful part of nature. I recommend walking over the footbridge to get the full impact of the gorge. The inscriptions are worth reading with the narrative about the Indians and the history of Norwich's early...More

A must stop to see Indian Leap at Yantic Falls. Just walk half way across the bridge and listen to the roaring falls and view the site of the historic Mohican battle.

Great view of the falls but treacherous in the winter. Enjoy the history and the gentle hike. Safe for kids and animals.
