Aspetuck Falls is a beautiful waterfall located in Weston, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 20 feet and it can be found along the Aspetuck River. The river flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Aspetuck Falls is a great spot to during any month of the year. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of a large plunge followed by a number of small cascades.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy and quick. The waterfall is located in the Taylor Woods Preserve which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park along Tall Pines Drive at the trailhead and then hike the 0.7 mile loop trail to see the falls. The falls are located at the halfway point of the Taylor Woods Loop Trail. Visiting the waterfall is a great family-friendly activity and dogs are welcome to explore there too!
