Schaghticoke Road Cascades


Schaghticoke Road Cascades is a beautiful roadside waterfall located in Kent, Connecticut. The waterfall has a total height of 90 feet and it can be found along an unnamed stream that flows into the Housatonic River. The waterfall stream flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, the Schaghticoke Road Cascades are wonderful to check out anytime. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of two horsetails. 

Viewing the waterfalls is extremely easy considering the southernmost falls are just feet from the road. The northernmost falls can be seen after a quick hike up the stream. Since the falls are so accessible, they are wonderful for exploring with kids and also people who are handicap. Dogs are also welcome to join in on the fun!
