Wadsworth Big Falls. Middlefield, CT
Approximately 25-30 feet high with a span of 50 -60 feet, the Coginchaug River entire volume roars over a ledge creating a dynamic high volume waterfall, one must see. Easy access and very spectacular during heavy rains or spring run off just makes this a very appealing waterfall destination.
