Mount Riga is full of activities but also holds this hidden gem.

The best part of the adventure is finding this hidden gem also known as Riga Falls. Riga Falls is actually one of Connecticut's lesser known waterfalls, but arguably the most scenic. A helpful hint is that the waterfall lies beside dirt road, keep your ears open! I've already said too much, happy exploring! 

And remember, please pack out what you brought in and any other trash you may come across.
