After dinner at Bull's Bridge Inn we walked over and looked at the water moving down the river. Absolutely lovely and romantic. We had fun skipping rocks at the waters edge.

A beautiful stop along the Conneticut scenic route. There was parking and room to see some of the falls and river below.

I like hiking by the Housatonic River, under old and tall pine trees on the trail next to the river. Hiking here after heavy rain storms intensifies the whitewater rapids, making a more enjoyable hike.

Great place for photos any time of year. Washington's horse fell off this bridge! Fabulous hiking trails in this location with birds eye view of the Housatonic River.

We took this on the way to Kent Falls Park. It's worth seeing if you're in the area and want to see a covered bridge.

There is parking right before you cross the bridge and it is free. Once you go over the bridge there are trails and parking also. If I recall, not a big lot once you cross.
