Burlington Falls


Burlington Falls is a stunning waterfall located in Burlington, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 15 feet and it can be found along Bunnell Brook. Bunnell Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, Burlington Falls is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique horsetail formation. 

Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in New Britain Water Department Conservation Commission land. The land is technically private, but courteous and quick visitors have often been welcomed. Absolutely not swimming is allowed at the falls.

Visitors can park in a small dirt pullover area on along Hotchkiss Road and then walk across the road and down to the falls. The walk to the falls is just a 100 feet. This is a wonderful family-friendly adventure and dogs are welcome on the trail too!
