Kent Falls, a state park in the town of Kent, Connecticut, is a series of waterfalls on the Falls Brook, a tributary of the Housatonic River. The park is located in the Litchfield Hills, in the southern Berkshires.

Kent Falls is a series of several waterfalls, dropping 250 feet in under a quarter mile. The largest cascade drops more than 70 feet into a reflecting pool, before traveling over the lesser falls.

The park has a replica of a covered bridge that allows visitor to cross the brook and access the falls.

Park Renovations

In 2006 the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection completed a project in which several observation platforms were constructed along a trail next to the falls. At the base of the falls, a terraced observation area paved with native flag stones was created to allow access to a calm water wading pool.

Discovering Kent: Driving through the rolling hills of Litchfield County, there's a certain sense of history that isn't obvious in the more populated suburbs.

When waters are rushing, this park is PHENOMENAL. Tons of trails for hiking and park area is gorgeous for picnics! Gets very busy summer weekends so plan ahead!
