CT: Hartford County- Granby- Enders Falls (Winter hike)


I had been to Enders Falls once before in 2020 in the summer and recognized I would return notwithstanding the drive. It’s part of the larger Enders Forest but if you want to see only the falls it’s a short hike from the lot. Given the amount of snow and there are stairs that are snowed over, I found my micro spikes a necessity.

There were others that started the path with me but stopped at the steeper set of stairs saying they were concerned they wouldn’t make it back up. I can confirm I needed them but I found it worth the effort.

This was definitely a trip that I couldn’t adequately capture in the photos. There is a canopy of trees that line your path along the falls.

With five falls of different types there is a different world to be imagined with each plateau although I couldn’t capture them all.

It was suggested to return after the next rain as the snow dissipates and the icicles will be more pronounced

I captured a few seconds of the babbling brook traversing the snow clouds. While others may be focused on the icicles of the falls for some reason this is the spot I found most magical and serene.

If you’ve chosen to come here during the winter you are either into photography or feel the magic of nature.

Once again those that were on the hike engaged with one another and gave each other tips with where to go, what you’ll see and when to come back!

Given the degree of snow, do stay on the path and hold onto the rail. A step off the path can send you down the ravine! Happy winter hiking!
