Explore Chapman Falls in Devil's Hopyard SP
Rate this Adventure Connecticut › Devil's Hopyard Parking (Foxtown RD)
Added by David Gallo
Small effort, big reward. A few minute hike to one of my favorite waterfalls and hangout spots in Connecticut.
If you map to Chapman Falls in East Haddam, CT, you will be brought to a parking lot opposite from the waterfall in Devil's Hopyard, a beautiful Connecticut state park. Once there, it's only a few minute walk down a very clear trail to the base of the 60 foot falls. There's plenty of room to set up a hammock and have a picnic, especially the upper portion of the falls. The best part of these falls for me is how accessible they are for swimming. On a hot summer day nothing is better than submerging yourself in the rushing waters of a cool waterfall. You can even go behind the water curtain and hangout for a bit. If you and your friends or family (all ages can easily access the falls) are looking for a fun mini-adventure with minimal effort to hangout and chill for a few hours, this is definitely recommended for you!
Aside from the falls, Devil's Hopyard offers miles of trails, birding, fishing, and a campground.
