Carpenter’s Falls


Carpenter’s Falls is a beautiful waterfall located in the McLean Game Refuge Wildlife Sanctuary in Granby, Connecticut. The waterfall is not very well-known, but it is absolutely stunning. In total, Carpenter’s Falls drops about 20 feet and consists of horsetails. The waterfall is located along Beach Brook which flows hardest after big rainstorms and during the spring when snow is melting. 

The waterfall is relatively easy to access considering most of the hike to the waterfall is along an abandoned section of Broad Hill Road. You will have to go down a steep hill to see the waterfall from below, but it is well worth it. Just be careful because the terrain around the waterfall gets very slippery.
