Pretty area. A bit of a shorter hike but nice little falls

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.

Falls are beautiful but easy to get lost. Trails aren't marked well.

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.

Someone added a photo that looks as if it's in some sort of concrete manmade cave, I've never seen that at Enders, where would that be located?

Short hike but that's not why we go. We love to jump off the cliffs and swim in the cool water. Much more fun than going to the beach.

Very very short hike lots of downed trees off the beaten path trails if your looking for a day to have a good hike this is not the place- the falls are amazing but we wanted to hike, see falls, hike- but it was all falls people in the water etc not really a hiking trail for hikers

5 Stars for the views. Not many trails to run. Nice for a cold dip in the summer
