Hike to Campbell Falls

Connecticut Campbell Falls Trailhead

Added by Chandler Anderson

A must see 50 ft waterfall that can turn any hot summer day to the ultimate chill paradise

Campbell Falls, one of the most beautiful parks in CT. Don't let the size of the park fool you, that's what adds to the beauty. With it's strong pine and fresh flower scented woods you slowly forget that you're even in Connecticut. The trails aren't labeled the greatest but still can be made out. Overall this short hike doesn't have my hills..unless you go off the beaten path...which i recommend you do because you might just find a 50 ft waterfall that really packs a punch. make sure you explore all around the waterfall, you never know what you might see. Be careful of slippery rocks.
