About This Location

Northgate Falls is a wonderful roadside waterfall located in Simsbury, Connecticut. The waterfall has three distinct tiers and it drops about 30 feet in total. The three tiers have led to this waterfall also being referred to as Three Falls. The lowest falls are an 8-foot cascade, the middle falls are two 12-foot horsetails, and the upper waterfall is a 10-foot fan.

Northgate Falls is fueled by a tributary to Bissell Brook which really only flows strongly after heavy rain and when snow melts in the spring. The waterfall is extremely easy to access. There is a small parking area located just steps away from the waterfall off Firetown Road in Simsbury. The waterfall is included in the McLean Game Refuge which is a 4,4000 acre nature preserve. Be sure to check out the nearby Carpenter’s Falls which is another beautiful waterfall located in the McLean Game Refuge.
