Lowden Brook Cascades is a charming little waterfall located in Voluntown, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of just 5 feet and it can be found along Lowden 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, Lowden Brook Cascades can be a fun spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of a series of cascades flowing through large rocks.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Pachaug State Forest which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park at the trailhead along Trail 1 Road and then hike 0.40 miles 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 Pachaug State Forest.
