About This Location
Jack’s Brook Cascade is a pretty waterfall located in Roxbury, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of just about 15 feet and it can be found along Jack’s 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 to see the greatest watershed, Jack’s Brook Cascade is a fun spot to visit year-round.
The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of cascades which drop over a gentle slop. There is also a large pool at the base of the falls. The pool may look tempting on summer days, but sadly it is only about 2 feet deep. That said, kids and dogs can definitely enjoy the water on hot days.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Brian E. Tierney Preserve which has a great loop trail. Visitors can park in the lot along Squire Road and then hike a half-mile one-way to the falls. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in. Dogs are also allowed on the trail and through the entirety of the preserve. If you’re looking to hike more, you can hike the whole 1.5 mile loop trail.
