Wadsworth Big Falls

Wadsworth Big Falls, part of Wadsworth Falls State Park located in Middletown, Connecticut, is probably the highest volume waterfall I’ve seen in Connecticut (so far).  The Coginchaug River flows over it and there is about a 25 foot drop.

This is also a waterfall that is very easy to access from the parking lot – you just walk across a little field to get to the falls and an observation area.  However, don’t do like I did – my GPS unit brought me to Wadsworth Falls State Park;  unfortunately, it was at the wrong area in the park and it took me about 30 minutes to figure out there was no waterfall at that particular parking lot.  If you run into this same situation, check your GPS or the map at the parking lot and you should be able to figure it out.

Wadsworth big falls is very impressive because of the large volume of water, but it’s definitely not my favorite waterfall for strictly an aesthitic viewpoint.  It is definitely worth a vist, especially if you also visit Wadsworth Little Falls, which I’ll discuss in my next post.
