This park has been a favorite of mine for years. We hadn't t been there for quite some time . and were very happy to see that it is as good as ever. I would say even better than ever. The covered bridge picture above is now painted red and could use some spiffing up, one side has an obvious... More

Kent falls as an incredibly awesome waterfall. My problem with it is that everyone knows about it and they've set the land up in the same way. I enjoy going to a waterfall as a solo adventure. This is more of a park of a picnic ground with a look but don't touch policy.

As a result of recent hard rains and snow melt, waters are rushing over Kent Falls. This gem of a small park is well maintained and conveniently located right off Route 7. A path climbs along the side of the Falls with conveniently located overlooks. While not a long path (Kent Falls will not be confused with Niagara anytime soon),... More

Brought relatives from Italy to enjoy this quaint park off RT 7 in the northern park of Kent. Great for a vigorous hike up the side of the falls overlooking the beautifull scenery of the area. Great for picnics in the summer and fall. Picnic tables, grills and restrooms available. Pete

I enjoyed seeing the waterfalls, but it is quite the steep trek if you plan on walking the trail. I walked until there was a tree that had fallen over blocking the path. Very quiet, there weren't many people here. We visited late on a Thursday and there wasn't a cover.

Place is okay but does not worth $15. I cannot imagine how can someone charge you this much for such small attraction with no facility.

It's fun to walk through the covered bridge up to the falls - the path can be a bit slippery at times so be careful - and there are no amenities...

Great place to go for half a day to have a picnic a short (but sometimes steep) walk to the top with viewing points along the way. Despite signs saying not to go into the water there were several people in the falls and during our visit we did see someone hurt themselves as a result, the signs are there... More
