Waterfall · Nature / Park
Great Falls is a waterfall formed along the Housatonic River at Falls Village in the town of Canaan amidst Connecticut's Litchfield Hills. Great Falls is the highest volume waterfall in the state, though a great deal of its potential water volume is diverted immediately upstream during most of the year for hydro-electric power generation.

  • Great views, easy access, amazing locals... a must if you are in the area.
  • No restrooms, no garbage bins... but people fish, jump off cliffs , and picnic there. Its not very well-known spot, but very scenic.
