Kent Falls State Park sign

Kent Falls is a series of waterfalls on Falls Brook, a tributary of the Housatonic River in the Litchfield Hills, in the southern Berkshires. The falls drop 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 falls are part of Kent Falls State Park, a state park located in the town of Kent, Connecticut. In addition to its scenery, the park offers opportunities for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. The park has a replica of a covered bridge that allows visitors to cross the brook and access the falls.

After taking a photo of Karen Duquette by Kent Falls, Lee told her to turn and face the other way. Actually, Karen likes the first photo best. (2013)

The two RV Gypsies did not hike the trail that goes up besides the waterfall, because Lee Duquette was in need of both knees being replaced.

The two RV Gypsies returned to Kent Falls State Park in Kent, CT on September 29, 2014 and this time they hiked higher up to the falls because Lee Duquette's knees were doing fine. This time they walked a total of 370 stone stairs - round trip.

Some steps had a railing, but most did not, and most steps were not really stairs, but a big steep step up from one rock to another.

The path went away from the falls, then probably circled back around to the top of the falls, but the two RV Gypsies decided not to push Lee's knees that much.

Heading back down, Karen Duquette took photos of the fall foliage and flowers.

The two RV Gypsies made a new friend, Elijah. They enjoyed talking to him. He is a veteran who also lives in an RV.
