Very easy walk/hike up and around Kent Falls. Super kid friendly with plenty of amazing views. Probably the nicest and largest water falls in Connecticut. Kent Falls State Park is located in Kent, CT.

Nice place. Very clean. Gave a 3 star rating because it cost $9 to park your vehicle. I arrived to the park with three other friends we were on motorcycles, had to pay $9 per bike to park, so it was a total of $36 for us to park 4 motorcycles in one parking spot. We didn’t let the parking fee ruin our day, still had a great time, just will not be returning to Kent falls anytime soon.

Great for picnics, getting your feet wet, and a quick hike. Can get crowded, but much less during the week. The falls are quite beautiful, great place for families. (we went on a week day and parked for free)

Short and sweet. If you have bad knees (like me) and have trouble going up stairs I would take Advil first!! lol Take your time and don't get discouraged. definately worth the walk. lots of large steps but there is a hand rail if you need it! gorgeous views!

Beautiful Falls. Nice cemented stairways halfway up then worn out path with various decks to stop and admire the falls.
I took the Northtrail on the other side of the falls back to the parking area. It hugs the ledge on that side so not for little ones. Not much of view in summer on that side
Free entrance weekdays else state park fees on weekend during summer months.

Spectacular spot to hang out, grill, play games in the field and of course, walk up along the biggest waterfalls in the area

Great way to spend a day. Little picnic area at the bottom with lots of grass. The walk up to the top was pretty easy. Steps and trail. The falls were beautiful. Lots of water right now. We did the trail up to the top then right back down. Next time we will try the other trails.
