Waterfall and Brook at Indian Well State Park

Today was a beautiful day here in Connecticut, so I decided to drive to Indian Well State Park (located in Shelton, Connecticut) and hike up to the waterfall on Indian Hole Brook. It’s a very short walk up to the waterfall and the trail follows the brook.

When I made it to the waterfall, I was taken aback – I’ve lived in this area for several years, but didn’t know this lovely waterfall was even in the park. According to Greg Patersons and Kate B. Watson’s book “New England Waterfalls” (which is how I found out about this waterfall, believe it or not), the height of the falls is about 15 feet.

I met several people along the trail and everyone was extremely friendly.  A couple of locals (if you’re reading this, I apologize for not getting your names) told me stories of camping in the area when they were kids and jumping off the rocks into the hole below the falls.  They also told me stories of people accidentally falling as well, so follow the posted signs and don’t go out on the rocks.

Below is a photo of the waterfall as well as a few photographs of Indian Hole Brook.  It’s such a nice area that I plan to return later this year for more photos.
