Great family hike. 4, 5 and 7 year old. 3.4 miles with dog. Right after snow melt and rain, falls were flowing! Will go again.

Had a great, easy hike here yesterday. If you park in the large lot that the app takes you to the main trail entrance is to the left where you see the bathroom facilities.
As you follow the main trail, I suggest following the sign to the little falls. You'll see the little falls first then the big falls after.
You can also put wadsworth falls into google maps and it takes you to the lot for the big falls on cherry hill road. Getting to the big falls from that lot is very accessible and easy.
Also recommend taking a photo of the trail maps at the main entrance in case you want to check out any of the offshoot trails while in there. Really easy paths, beautiful woods. Tons of chipmunks and squirrels, which made for two tired dogs when I was done. Also a great spot for a hot day, very shady and breezy in the woods.

It is an easy area. It also has a variety of trails. Some quite groomed and flat and some through the woods with little ups and downs. Convenient and pretty.

Great trail to do with the dog. There was lots of wildlife to watch too!
There are two parking areas though. One is free and has you start at the big falls. The other is $9 (for CT residents) and has you starting near the swimming area.

falls were great! crowded on a weekday afternoon. flat trails, good for kids, dogs, or running.

It's good -- if you want to get to the waterfall, you'll have to walk on the road a bit and cross a bridge before you can get down to it.

I love hiking these trails as my house is a short walk away from the trailhead...

I like the variety of trails offered. we took our three year old on the orange trail and he was a trooper. loved it. getting down to the mini falls was a bit tricky downhill for him but very fun. we are new to trails/hiking and were a bit confused with the map... especially when we ended up on a main road way before reaching the falls. but we kept going and found it quickly. definitely will go again.

Easy trails. Choice between direct, high traffic trails with smaller, windier less travelled trails connecting throughout. I love all the running water in this area it really makes for a nice soothing hike. Lots of friendly dogs and even horses at times.

Easy hike, and the falls are pretty cool but nothing to write home about. I took the side paths and ended up getting roughly four and a half miles. Falls area seems to be popular with fresh water fishers as the streams are stocked.

I took the side trails and saw four sets of waterfalls! Great hike, not too rigorous. I then went to a vineyard near by which was awesome.

Great when it's quiet- falls are crowded on hot days
