The 2nd drop on Enders Falls (August 2012)

There are at least four visible, photograph-able drops along Enders Falls. I’ve already posted about drops #1 and #4, so check those out to see them. I think the second drop might be my favorite of the drops, though. (I really have to admit it’s fun to explore this area, finding all of these different views.)

The second drop clocks in at about 15-20′, and is taller than it appears in photos. The creek plunges down, and the eroded rocks surrounding it are really truly beautiful. To add to the beauty, it was very peaceful. There were only a few other people at the falls, and there are enough drops that you can find your own place to rest for a bit. If you have the time, check out all of Enders Falls!

Directions:

  1. From Hartford, head northwest toward Granby. If you were at the Hartford Airport, you could exit and head west along CT-20.
  2. Keep going on CT-20 through Granby until you come to the intersection with CT-219. (If you’re coming from another direction, head toward CT-219.)
  3. From CT-20, turn left onto CT-219 (Barkhamsted Road).
  4. About 1.5 miles from the intersection of CT-20 and CT-219, you’ll find a sign for Enders State Forest on your left. Park here and start the hike to the falls. It’s just less than half a mile one-way.

Accessibility: 8/10 (easy/moderate)
Length of Hike: 0.8 miles round-trip (to see all four falls)
Height: 18′
