CT: Hartford County- Blackledge Falls (Winter)

I stood in the center of Blackledge Falls in Glastonbury, CT which was literally frozen in time. I included myself in the shot for scale.

It’s Connecticut’s natural ice castles and is truly amazing to see. About 1/2 mile hike from the lot but it is a steep decline to the falls so must wear micro spikes.

While the trail may be hard to see if the snow is fresh, the signage is excellent. However do pay attention to where the brook may be or you could wind up breaking into icy water. With appropriate precautions it’s a great time!

“Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky”
(Lyrics from the movie Frozen)

Recommend going to Spicy Green beans for lunch with a tasty allergen free dessert next door at Dee’s bakery in the town.

Side note for those with food allergies! Dee’s bakery is an allergen free bakery and as a family with a food allergy it’s one of the best I’ve found in the state. My son gave it two thumbs up!
