About This Location

Ambler Cascade, also known as Ambler Gorge, is a beautiful waterfall located in Weston, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 20 feet and it can be found along the West Branch of the Saugatuck River. The brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Ambler Cascade is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of wonderful cascades.

Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Lucius Pond Ordway / Devil’s Den Nature Preserve which features a well-marked and well-maintained trail system. In fact, Devil’s Den is The Nature Conservatory’s largest preserve in Connecticut.

Visitors can park at the end of Pent Road and then hike to the falls. The falls can be accessed via a 1.1-mile (one-way) hike by hiking the Pent Trail to Ambler Trail. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in. Sadly, dogs are not allowed in the preserve.
