Kent Falls State Park, one of Connecticut's most popular state parks and one of New England's top places for a picnic. Here you will find two hundred and fifty feet of cascades and plunges and one of the finest, well-maintained public parks in New England.
A trip to Kent Falls is one way to view just about every different classification of waterfall. There are plunges, horsetails, punchbowls, blocks, and fans. Many of the falls are also very photogenic, especially in the afternoon when the sun makes the water glitter.
The trail to the top of the falls is steep, but manageable. Although we feel that the view when you first see this waterfall is alone worth a trip, make sure to climb up the trail to see the rest of the variety this series of waterfalls has to offer. Schedule a few hours when you visit as there is also a small covered bridge, large grassy fields, and plenty of picnic tables and fire-pits at this very popular park.
