Beautiful!

Took the Beaver Pond Trail. Great educational hike for the kids. Then stop off at the main building and look at the exhibits inside,

Not bad for after work. Some sweet single tracks that are unmarked off the main trails.

Easy 3/4 mile stroll up to the falls. Nice falls but overrun with jackasses not heeding the no swimming or diving signs. Loud and full of humanity on a warm weekend. Nice to see it but I don't think I'll be coming back. Not as spectacular as, say, Kent Falls, and just too many people. Parking is also a mess.

Easy and mostly flat trails, some elevation change. Good shade coverage and the falls are a lovely sight.

Really enjoyable hike with kids.

Good if you live in Fairfield County and don’t feel like driving too far to get into the woods for exercise...some broken glass at the only lookout spot, though.

This short walk along a stream on a hot day when many people were cooling off walking around in the water was really nice! No swimming by the actual falls (strictly enforced). Super crowded with families and lots of people and dogs.

nice trail, walked our 2 dogs there....good shading, not too hot.

Nice experience

Great for a family? Two parking sites one further away then the other. Our 7 and 9 yearold loved the hike and the falls. Room to go out on rocks which were safe for most, with the exception of very young kids or those with mobility difficulty. Well worth the trip.

Great hike. Mostly flat but some small ups & downs. Good relaxing stroll with great falls. My son & I hiked the orange (main) trail out to Big Falls and it was gorgeous! When you get to the end of the trail, walk up the road about 300 feet and the trail continues on the right. Falls are right beyong the parking lot & field. They can be accessed even if you don't hike.

Great trail with beautiful scenery. The blue trail to the right and quite steep with a lot of rock washes. The red trail to the left is much easier with better views. The trails at the top also connect to the Quinnipiac Trails.

Beautiful hike but very crowded.

I proposed to my wife here right after a snow storm in November. Beautiful spot any time of the year!

Great and local. As another commenter said, lots of bugs in Spring/early Summer. Almost none in fall.

Nice lake. Some rocks for kids to scramble up. Great vibe as other hikers share the road, parking lot, and trails.

Nice walk along river. Will definitely go back.

Great trail! Excellent views of the waterfall! Not well marked on the way down, but it was clear what was the trail. Definitely rocky and steep in many areas.

This was a good trail. Very well marked. Easy to follow. The first part of the white trail wasn't so pretty but by the river was absolutely beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing!

Great for a hike, walk, or run. Trails are designed for hiking, walking, or running depending on where you go. Great for Nature walks with small children. Would recommend this to others!

Easy walk to a great waterfall

great everyday hiking/walking trails. if you go to the trails on the right huge fern field in the woods

Had an absolutely beautiful hike here.

Amazing little hike. We parked at the Bish bash pull off and not at the state park so the hike was shorter. There are some small hills and the terrain is a little rocky at times. When you make it to the top and see the falls you will be in awe. You can take stairs down into the falls and climb the rocks to get some good picture or even cool of quick. No swimming signs are posted everywhere but a ton of people were in the water waist deep. Stairs are very step and uneven so be careful. Our 4.5lb Chihuahua went with us with zero issues. He loved being able to go into the water at the beginning/end of the trail. We camp in the area and this will definitely be a spot we visit often.

It has been so dry that the roaring brook is almost dried up in parts. The falls are still awesome but I am excited to return when we get a good amount of rain! I can imagine it is stunning when it’s in full force.

Started to the right and glad we did. it was much steeper and rockier than the other side. It was challenging hike up for sure! Better to get that out of way. That side was not well marked but the path was clearly evident so we never doubted where to go. The falls were pretty but a little underwhelming. couple of little bridge brook crossings and a cool stone fireplace made this a nice hike.

Very pretty, but make *sure* you bring your bug spray!

I think you have the wrong trail in the map. Millington trail is the red blazes. I know this, because I passed the green trail twice like the devil’s hopyard map says. I think it might be the green trail or blue. The trail listed which is green is the woodcutters trail and the blue it’s just blue. It’s easy to see when you look at the devil’s hopyard map they provide. Great trail I just wanted to bring attention to this and make it so others weren’t as confused as I was. It says that it is connected to the orange trail, but it goes out to the left of the map out of any crossing. Or maybe it’s labeled wrong as the upper loop of the orange trail where you go down a bit to the end of the second loop go back up and skip devil’s oven. Just fallow the red blazes after the waterfall.

Not a bad hike. Went a few years ago. The area is very pretty. A waterfall worth seeing again

Easy trail until you hike up to devils oven. Which has a big incline. Brought a dog and the dog could keep up.
