Sharon, Connecticut

Driving through the hills of Sharon on scenic Route 7, it’s surprisingly easy to miss Pine Swamp Brook as it tumbles through a narrow, roadside ravine, slipping swiftly beneath the street moments before joining the Housatonic River.

Pine Swamp Brook Falls is comprised of two successive drops totaling some 30 feet, a respectable height among Connecticut’s waterfalls. Although its namesake brook is a fairly diminutive stream that rises in a swath of wetlands only two miles to the northwest, the falls remain well fed with water even through the drier times of year.
