The Cascade (East Hampton, CT)


The Cascade in East Hampton, Connecticut is a beautiful waterfall to explore and photograph. The waterfall has a total height of 15 feet and it can be found along Carr Brook. Carr Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring, The Cascade in East Hampton is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique horsetail formation. 

Accessing the waterfall is a little challenging considering it is a bit hidden and so few people know about it. The waterfall is located in the Meshomasic State Forest which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park along Woodchoppers Road at the trailhead and then hike 1-mile one-way to the falls. The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in.
