CT: Fairfield County- Shelton- Indian Wells State Park

Indian Wells became a state park in 1928. Unbelievably almost 100 years ago. It was one of the first state parks I went to when I first started traveling around CT just for having a bite by the Housatonic River. I heard of a waterfall however so I returned. I’m so glad I did!

I was surprised to find the cavernous setting of the waterfall. The above photo is a panoramic of the cavern I’m actually all the way to the left to better gauge the size.

Continue up the mountain and you’ll reach a beautiful overlook of the Housatonic River.

The pool beneath the falls had water so clear and I can appreciate the request for no swimming.

The cascading water down to the river was fun to scramble the rocks and logs to find unique photo ops. Hard to pick which ones to share!

As I tried to find the angles I suddenly saw a resting bull frog who patiently posed.

After the hike, follow the new beach path to the river and have a relaxing bite. You can even grill down here!

Next time hope to bring a kayak to ride the river! Here’s the trail map!
