Meet at the Big Falls parking lot (not the main one) for Wadsworth Falls
State Park, which is just north of Connwood Foresters (39 Cherry Hill
Road, Middlefield). Extra parking will also be available at Connwood Foresters for hikers.
Heavy rain postpones to June 10th at 1:00 PM. We will contact all who have registered in the morning of June 3 if we need to postpone for weather.

Wadsworth Falls State Park was created through the generosity of the Rockfall Corporation and its founder, Clarence S. Wadsworth, who owned the 267 acres of land as part of his holdings that included Long Hill Estate. According to his wishes, this land, the "Rockfall Tract of Great Falls Region," was donated to the state of CT shortly after Wadsworth's death in 1942. Rockfall is named after the beloved rock falls in the park.
The Captain's Field is 16 acres on Cherry Hill Road that abuts Wadsworth Falls State Park and is owned by The Rockfall Foundation. Click here for a map.
