About This Location
Saugatuck Falls is a charming little waterfall located in Redding, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 10 feet and features a beautiful formation of cascades. The waterfall can be found along the Saugatuck River which flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. That said, the flow during the summer, fall, and winter is often pretty good. This makes Saugatuck Falls a fun spot to visit year-round!
The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of cascades. Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in the Saugatuck Falls Natural Area which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park in a small lot along Redding Road right across the street from the John Read Middle School and then hike to the falls. The hike is 0.70 miles one-way and the trail runs parallel to the river. 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 natural area.
