Kent Falls State Park, Kent, CT

Kent Falls State Park, Kent, CT  We don't normally post about things outside of Newtown, but Kent Falls State Park is so special, we just couldn't resist.

Yesterday, while on the way back from looking a foreclosure property in Falls Village, we stopped at Kent Falls State Park.  It'd been awhile since we'd been there and we'd forgotten how special it is.  Kent Falls State Park is nestled in the northern end of Kent, CT, just below Cornwall on Route 7.  Kent Falls State Park is approximately 40 minutes north of Newtown.

When you arrive to the park, you see a small wooden sign at the entrance and then you pass the guard booth on the way into the parking lot.  The covered bridge over the stream brings you to the walkway that leads directly to the lower part of the falls.  There are numerous picnic tables and BBQ pits along the way and a large grassy field, too.  Alongside the falls, are stone steps that lead upward to a couple of promenades adjacent to the falls.  We understand that further up there is a trail system, but we haven't seen it.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy.

Beautiful, isn't it? If you're interested in a not so far away day trip from Newtown, give Kent Falls State Park a try.  And shop the stores or get something to eat in downtown Kent on your way home.
