Cussgutter Brook Cascades


Cussgutter Brook Cascades is a beautiful waterfall located in Southington, Connecticut right on the border of Bristol, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 80 feet and it can be found along Cussgutter Brook. 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, the Cussgutter Brook Cascades are great to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of mainly cascades and a few small plunges. 

Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in an unnamed park which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park along and then hike 0.30 miles one-way to the falls. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some exercise in. Dogs are also allowed on the trail.
