Wadsworth Big Falls


Wadsworth Big Falls in Middletown, Connecticut is one of the highest volume undammed waterfalls in Connecticut. The waterfall drops about 25 feet in a block formation as it is wider than it is tall. It often has a strong flow but is most powerful during the spring when snow is melting and also after rainstorms. That said, the falls are worth seeking out all year round! 

Wadsworth Big Falls is located in 285-acre Wadsworth Falls State Park which also offers trail hiking, picnic areas, fishing, and more. The park also offers another waterfall, Wadsworth Little Falls. The bigger waterfall is located just about 150 feet from the parking lot along Cherry Hill Road. Wadsworth State Park is dog-friendly.
