Spend a summer day cooling off in the mist of the waterfall or an autumn day hiking or biking the varied trails of the park.

Had an absolutely beautiful hike here.

Greatly enjoyed this hike. The view was amazing to see

Amazing, non tiring, serene waterfalls. A must visit.

Nice views, good uphill walk. But noisy road traffic.

how beautiful! will be back ❤

If this is a top 10 in Connecticut then I’d hate to see what the rest of the hiking trails have to offer. First of all, I’m not so sure that I’d call this moderate as it’s quite easy. Also, what the trail information fails to mention is that the trail overlooks a busy area with loads of roads, etc so you really don’t feel like you’ve gotten out in nature for most of the hike.

Went last fall. Great hike and view!

Nice hike, saw 2 eagles in flight on the cliffs, I would come back again.

Would rate this “easy” over “moderate” as although there are some steep parts, it’s a quicker hike overall. My advice for if you want to see both the little falls and big falls: start off by following the orange trail, and when it splits off follow the direction towards Little Falls. This way you will get to enjoy a more moderate section of trail, and see the little falls first. Then continue across the stream and up the hill, at the top you can once again follow the orange trail to the left or right, go to the right and continue following orange until you get to the Big Falls. Beautiful place overall.

Great trail, I did get lost trying to find the water fall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would rate this more a moderate than easy. It is an incline all the way up, that if you have bad knees, you start to feel it. Its also a State park, so come summer, a fee Im sure is charged. Paths are a little confusing if you have not been here before. Real nice walk through the woods though.

Mt Higby is one of the best hikes that i have ever done especially because of the scenic views from the top and the hike trial itself. Awesome one...

I like this one because the trail is along the cliffs so you get the feeling of being high up most of the time.

It is a very cold winter day, I will be returning in warmer weather . There was a lot of ice today and the trails weren’t marked that well, went off the trail a bit. Didn’t get too far into the trail but the views we did get to see were nice .

Beautiful place !

Great family hike. 4, 5 and 7 year old. 3.4 miles with dog. Right after snow melt and rain, falls were flowing! Will go again.

Great trail. Not too strenuous.

This was a very enjoyable trail with spectacular views of the rocks and cliffs. Some of the trails do go near the edges of the cliffs but there is an alternate trail right behind most of them a few more feet in. Definitely looking forward to visiting again.


Couldn't be more enjoyable. Nice views most of the way. Looking forward to the possibilities in winter

Had a great, easy hike here yesterday. If you park in the large lot that the app takes you to the main trail entrance is to the left where you see the bathroom facilities.
As you follow the main trail, I suggest following the sign to the little falls. You'll see the little falls first then the big falls after.
You can also put wadsworth falls into google maps and it takes you to the lot for the big falls on cherry hill road. Getting to the big falls from that lot is very accessible and easy.
Also recommend taking a photo of the trail maps at the main entrance in case you want to check out any of the offshoot trails while in there. Really easy paths, beautiful woods. Tons of chipmunks and squirrels, which made for two tired dogs when I was done. Also a great spot for a hot day, very shady and breezy in the woods.

It is an easy area. It also has a variety of trails. Some quite groomed and flat and some through the woods with little ups and downs. Convenient and pretty.

Easily one of my favorite local hikes, I've returned to this trail time and again over the years. It's an in and out trail so you need only go as far as you feel on any particular day. Great views from the top and many places from which to relax and enjoy them!

GREAT for people hiking with dogs and/or kids.

Fun Hike. Wish there was a loop to make of it though. Next time Might come through the Higby Road trail-head though. From the Higby Road lot, there is a Red/Blue trail that will take you to the blue trail.

Great trail to do with the dog. There was lots of wildlife to watch too!
There are two parking areas though. One is free and has you start at the big falls. The other is $9 (for CT residents) and has you starting near the swimming area.

falls were great! crowded on a weekday afternoon. flat trails, good for kids, dogs, or running.
