Kent Falls State Park is located in the town of Kent, Connecticut, within the Litchfield Hills region of the southern Berkshires. The state park is home to Kent Falls, a series of waterfalls on Falls Brook, a tributary of the Housatonic River. 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.

Very easy trek up and around Kent Falls. This trail is very kid friendly with plenty of amazing views of one of the nicest and largest water falls in Connecticut. Though the trail isn't wheelchair friendly, the waterfall can be appreciated from the bottom of the trail near the parking area.Show more
