Have a day of family fun at Southford Falls State Park. Spend your day enjoying field sports, or try your luck at catching trout.
Nice quaint waterfall. Access is easy and unrestricted. Loop trail easy. Just short uphill but any age should be able to accomplish. Just not well marked. Found myself using this apps trail map to stay on course. Signs for "tower" but somehow completely missed it.
I went more to hang out, and it was a 90+ degree day, so I stopped often to enjoy the scenery and relax. This trail is very beautiful, from the waterfall and the stream, the watchtower, and the covered bridge. The trees provide quite a bit of sun coverage, which is nice for me since I'm fair skinned, and the little sun spots on the water are so gorgeous.... There are a lot of uphill rocky slopes so if I were to go alone it would make a perfect workout!
