We hiked the falls trail and I can say that each fall is unique and has you in awe. The trail that runs along the river and falls is not marked well and we lost our way for a bit and wound up climbing uphill to find the return trail of the loop. It was a warm day and lots of people were going into the pools below each of the taller falls! I'd recommend you apply bug repellant of some sort too.

park and take a left for a short hike with three different little falls to see within 15 minutes of parking the main trail above the falls is easy for all levels to get down to the top of the falls it's a steep grade with some drop offs but still not very difficult if you take a right from parking you will not find falls but lots of trails and forks in the river to fallow back upstream good place to go with kids and also for a short hike or you could spend some time their

Nice little hike, beautiful trail and the waterfalls were very impressive. Only downside is the trails were not marked well, but other than that highly recommended!

easy is relative I guess. I chose for the 'easy' rating to take my four year old. too steep and icy to make it a safe trip. looks like this will be an amazing summer hike with him though. will re-rate then.

I like it because there's a couple of cliffs you can jump off and there's a couple of water pool area for kids to play in. There's a few rock areas that daring kids like to climb. Too dangerous as far as I'm concerned.
The trail itself is poorly marked but it would be very difficult to get lost. It's a moderate level hike but not too adventurous. Steep walk down and very slippery once you start going towards the water.

Pretty views! Trail isn't marked but it's almost impossible to get lost even if you venture a little off trail if you walk up you'll hit the main trail and if you walk down you'll hit the stream and waterfalls.

Beautiful but not an "easy" trail- rating should definitely be moderate. Not well marked and slippery in some areas. Very steep as well! Well worth a visit though.

An old local favorite, be advised the slick rocks and overgrown trail merit at least a 'moderate' difficulty rating.

Trail is easy, though slippery sometimes, and poorly signaled. Follow both the purple markers and the wide flat path to stay on it.

If you want to splash around the waterfalls below, it's a very slippery way down and up, any of the muddy steep paths. Bring proper scrambling shoes with good grip. Definitely moderate to difficult, and totally worth it. This place is magical.

Beautiful set of waterfalls, each unique. Simple hike, spur trails can be a bit slick but not bad. Great for families.

Beautiful but don't come with kids as it's not safe for them due to cliffs.

I'm biased because I grew up here and there is an element of nostalgia but this place truly is magical.

This place is awesome. There are 6 different waterfalls and many different swimming holes. Just be wary of the days you decide to go because it does get very crowded.

I took my wife here yesterday. The book said easy to the third falls. The upper trail is flat and wide but any of the trails leading down to the falls can be difficult for anyone who is not limber. The falls, at least 5 of them, are pretty with water holes at the bottom for swimming. Very popular place for the younger crowd. At one of the last falls kids were jumping off the cliff plunging in the water hole feet first. The rocks are slippery and it can be potentially dangerous but the place be great fun and the people were friendly and helpful.

Great place to go!

I don't think I can take great grandma here. A gravel "fire road" is being over taken by the wood. To get to the stream its steep and slippery.

Fine for older kids and families too. You can spend an hour or so here with the hike, views and plants & trees.

This place although a small and easy hiking area is STUNNING. Parking is free accommodates about 7 cars tops. Keep an eye on young children many steep straight down drop offs down to the rocks and water. The waterfalls are an easy 5 minute walk from the parking lot. It doesn't feature just one waterfall it features several 5-6 with different views at the bottom of each. excellent place to listen to the water and enjoy a picnic. one of the most scenic and photogenic Connecticut waterfall spots i have seen and i am a waterfall chaser. Would absolutely return and plan to this summer to see the forest in bloom alongside of the waterfalls.
