Trail Map


Message from the DEEP – PARTIAL CLOSURE
November 2018: The area of Enders State Forest south of Route 219 (the area of the gorge and waterfalls) is temporarily closed to allow for construction activity around the waterfalls.  All public access to this area is prohibited during construction.  The remainder of Enders State Forest (north of Route 219) will remain open for recreational purposes.  It is anticipated that the work will be completed sometime in mid-2019.
While there isn’t much for hiking Enders is certainly a destination. The purple blazed trail follows the northern side of Mountain Brook as it heads down a long series of falls.  This stretch has five distinct falls which are among the best in the state.  Swimming and cliff jumping are allowed here though signs warn against it.
Since the gorge and waterfalls are temporarily closed I’ll postpone doing a full write up during the current construction.

History:

From the DEEP site,

Enders State Forest began as a 1,500 acre gift to the people of the state of Connecticut by the Enders family in memory of John Ostrom Enders and Harriet Whitmore Enders by their four children. It became Connecticut’s 29th state forest when it was officially transferred to the state on April 2, 1970. The property has been added to continuously as opportunities have presented themselves over the years so that the forest is now nearly 2,100 acres in size.
