Connecticut's tallest single drop waterfall

Arriving to the falls, parking is residential but don't worry everyone is friendly. Starting off the hike you will walk past a cool pond where you may be able to see some wildlife. Continuing on, you will follow the marked trail where it will take you further into the woods while gaining elevation quickly. Get ready for some heart pumping hiking. Before you know it you will be able to see Roaring Brook Falls from the trail just after that hills. Once you can see the falls you can keep adventuring up to the top of the falls or go down into the ravine which will get you front and center of the 80ft falls.
