Beautiful trail, it has a “fairytale” like vibe to it. Barely any people there so I like that it wasn’t crowded. Small parking lot at trail head, then you cross through a meadow first and get to the start. We went clockwise but I would recommend going counterclockwise so that you can ascend the rock scramble and then end with the waterfall. Has some inclines and the scramble, but otherwise a very easy trail.

parking for about 8 cars or so. Nice trail - agree to go counterclockwise so you get the small rock scramble going up- and waterfalls at end- well marked and easy for all ages - bummer that people were swimming at the falls though (swimming not allowed) - couldn’t get a good photo

Beautiful trail memorializing a true American hero — right out of a Hollywood script. Recommend to hike in counterclockwise direction for waterfall and river walk payoff at the end.

This is such a cute short trail. The waterfall is beautiful, we went and sat by it for a while. Highly recommend this pleasant chill hike.

Read about this trail in the latest issue of Connecticut Magazine and decided to pay it a visit. The views alone are worth the drive. Would definitely add this one to my list of favorites.

This trail has something for everyone- rivers, rock scrambles, waterfalls, meadows. Well maintained and pretty quiet.

This trail is just ok. It’s a bit steep in the beginning so it’s good workout. The little falls are nice, I think in the future I’d just walk in toward the falls so the dog can play in the water & skip doing the loop.

Great trail with some uphill rock challenges but not to bad. Will definitely do this trail again!

Great up hill was a little more then expected but do-able and worth the challenge what hiking should be like...
