  • Stopped and took a walk by the roaring river. It’s really a nice place to enjoy both river a forest.  more »
  • A rebuilt bridge made of concrete...whats the big deal? There should be parking to wander the area which is very nice...but inaccessible.  more »
  • This is a quick stop. Nothing earthshaking, but enjoyable if you like covered bridges and cascading water. The bridge is an operational car bridge with very little edge for pedestrians, so one must be...  more »

  • Hike the Appalachian Trail, see raging waters, have a picnic, drive over an old-fashioned covered bridge, and maybe fish a little! The trails are well-kept and wide and usually "patrolled," so to speak, by some volunteers from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy during the weekends in summer. I have been coming here since I was a kid and it's one of my favorite places to visit in CT. It's one of my must-see places whenever I have out-of-town visitors! It is truly a stunning, beautiful place and absolutely worth a visit. There is a carry in, carry out policy. No picnic tables, but you can sit on the rocks and enjoy your lunch, so who needs a table? No facilities. Some things to know before you go: this is NOT the place to bring kids under 6! (Visit Kent Falls if you have little kids; it's much safer.) There are sheer drops and lots of big rapids. It is dangerous and not suitable for swimming. Swimming is not permitted, and even if people do it anyways, it doesn't mean you should, too! It is full of huge boulders with holes like swiss cheese and the water flow is regulated by a dam, which means as energy needs fluctuate, the water discharge can increase dramatically. Please take my warnings seriously. People HAVE died here from drowning while swimming. Enjoy the water responsibly. TL,DR: Don't swim, don't bring kids under 6. Enjoy the prettiest place in Litchfield County responsibly!
  • Quaint bridge, good place to go if you like jumping on rocks, navigating across a river, like I do.
  • Lots of fun been going here since the early 90's connects to the Appalachian trail.
  • Found this place by accident, cool spot to hike and hang out.
  • Great scenery. Beautiful gorge, Rapids. Covered bridge
