Kent Falls drops a total of some 250 feet along Falls Brook in Kent Falls State Park in western Connecticut not too far from the New York State border. Kent Falls is a really nice waterfalls in Connecticut, but warned here that Kent Falls can get crowded at times in the summer and people like to wade into the pools.

Great Falls is a pretty 60 foot waterfalls in northeastern Connecticut that flows down a ledge along the Housatonic River. Great Falls is located right near the Appalachian Trail just north of the town of Falls Village. There is a dam above the falls that is used for hydroelectricity, so the flow over the falls can be heavy or light. See here for a photo.
