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.

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.

This was a great little hike with an adorable nearby town. Parking free and abundant, main restroom closed up but an outhouse one person potty (gross) available. picnic grounds available. Neat covered bridge entrance. The falls are extremely neat to see and take pictures next to. Be prepared for a STEEP ascent of steps and trail at the beginning. You can easily view the falls and turn back we instead hiked the back end which was woodsy and muddy with some wash out areas. Trails are less then well marked in that rear loop. buggy wear spray. We headed to town afterwards for a yummy ice cream and to view some really neat metal sculptures from a local artist that are placed around town.
