CT: Litchfield County-New Milford- Lover’s Leap State Park (Spring Kayaking)

My favorite kayaking spot in the Fall (see Fall blog below), I chose to revisit in the Spring bringing a dear friend who I knew would appreciate all it had to offer.

Our first decision was where to launch. As two strong petite woman, could we really launch a tandem kayak taken from the top of an SUV and carry in down a long uneven dirt road to the water? We decided to give it a shot as starting from here I find to have a more grand entrance for the journey! This is the very end of Lovers Leap Road. Use 100 Lovers leap rd, New Milford in GPS.

Taking someone through the gorge to the Lovers Leap bridge for the first time always leaves them in awe.

After the bridge we make a left under additional bridges – ultimately four – to finally arrive at the waterfall in the natural aviary section of the ride.

This is definitely a great and easy kayak ride. Below are pictures and route details when I did it in the Fall. It’s wonderful in every season.
