Wander across the covered bridge, hike the falls, and feel the mist on your face as water cascades 250' down on its way to joining the Housatonic River.

Short and sweet. If you have bad knees (like me) and have trouble going up stairs I would take Advil first!! lol Take your time and don't get discouraged. definately worth the walk. lots of large steps but there is a hand rail if you need it! gorgeous views!

I know this is a trail guide but may I suggest renting a canoe and do the 6 mile river paddle. We went through Clark Outdoors and it was an awesome day despite the 15 minutes of torrential down pour while in baby rapids

all good, a small waterfall hike in a well kept park. fyi-$15 cash to park car.

Short east hike with many people. The waterfalls are pretty though.

had such a great day! was so surprised to find the waterfall kept going higher and higher as you climbed the trail!

Did a 2 mile walk on 4/5 after recent rainstorm. The Appalachian sign is small at the start of the long gravel road, but follow it until you can't go any further and you'll see the designated parking area and trailhead sign. Here's a great review of the whole trail and link to how to get to parking area:

It was mostly flat and along the river. Two small planks to walk across a stream that flows into the Housatonic and one area that flooded and required some hopping along the rocks. But other than that gentle with nice views of the river, mountains in distance and a farm across the river. Bring tick and mosquito repellent. There wasn't too many mosquitoes but A TON of ticks on our boots and dog when we finished the trail walk.

Beautiful Falls. Nice cemented stairways halfway up then worn out path with various decks to stop and admire the falls.
I took the Northtrail on the other side of the falls back to the parking area. It hugs the ledge on that side so not for little ones. Not much of view in summer on that side
Free entrance weekdays else state park fees on weekend during summer months.

Easy and flat but the nats and mosquitos made this 5 mile stretch of our 10 mile AT hike rather annoying... Bring your head net!! Some nice river views and some very cool wild flower pastures with peaks in the background. Saw a beaver and a couple herons for wild life.

Spectacular spot to hang out, grill, play games in the field and of course, walk up along the biggest waterfalls in the area

Beautiful 10 mile hike I use with my scout troop for first time 10 milers. We saw an osprey this time.

Great way to spend a day. Little picnic area at the bottom with lots of grass. The walk up to the top was pretty easy. Steps and trail. The falls were beautiful. Lots of water right now. We did the trail up to the top then right back down. Next time we will try the other trails.
