Falls Bridge

Paddling the kayak downstream from Addis Park in New Milford, the Housatonic River soon flows under Falls Bridge. Water levels today are higher and what were once falls are now a navigable turbulence. The bridge and trails that cross it, are part of Lover's Leap State Park. The cliffs through which the river flows show dynamic movement. Strata of sedimentary rock stand nearly on end, and towering layers overhang the water. Could this have been the work of glaciers? Today, the rock walls are wet, streams trickle feeding dense beds of moss, fern and wild columbine.
