Kettletown Brook Falls

Description

Kettletown Brook Falls is a lovely little waterfall located in Southbury, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 10 feet and it can be found along Kettletown 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, Kettletown Brook Falls is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of two five-foot cascades.

Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Kettletown State Park which features a well-marked trail system. The closest parking area to the waterfall is located just 200 feet west of the waterfall. Due to how quickly the waterfall can be accessed, this is a wonderful place to visit with kids. Dogs are also welcome to visit the waterfall and through the entirety of Kettletown State Park. This waterfall is definitely a hidden gem!
