The drive to the falls was very good - a leisurely drive with an excellent view of the fall colors all along the way. By themselves the falls and the trail are small - but go to watch the fall colors.

Beautiful park! Loved the waterfalls and the hiking. But $15 to park because I am not a CT resident?? That was uncool.

The park near the covered bridge is mowed. The stairs go along side the falls. U should be ok, if you decide to walk into the woods use REPEL spray with DEET.
