This is a partial/incomplete page as I have not yet explored Kent Falls.

The main feature of popular Kent Falls State Park is the upper and lower waterfalls.  The lower falls just off the main parking area quickly drop 250 ft with the largest fall being 70 ft as Kent Falls Brook heads toward the Housatonic River.  There are stairs with several viewing platforms along the southern side of the brook and 1.1 miles of trails north.

History:

Established as a state park in 1919.
