We noticed the sign for Devil's Hopyard on the way from Gilette Castle to Groton, so we decide to go there. Nice scenic drive to get to the park, and while Chapman Falls were somewhat small, I guess due to lack of rain, it was still a nice stop.
The falls themselves are beautiful. I wouldn't plan my whole day around the short hike but maybe if you are in the area, you should check it out. The best parts are all at the beginning and visible from the road. Parking is adequate.
Due to CT money issues, the State has closed this park for the season. It is a great park for swimming, camping and hiking usually. Too bad but maybe next year.
Overused by the public in some areas. Walked down to the bottom of the falls on a midweek midday visit. It was very pretty but we could tell by the trash left behind that the place is overused. Park service could maybe limit access a bit more? A few signs, fewer paths? Passed some group tent camping and some folks... 更多

Devil's Hopper is great for day hikes. The falls are the main attraction and people will sit out by them or jump in the water. (I would not recommend jumping in.) The Hopyard has a nice picnic ground. It's nice to walk around on a summer, spring, fall day.

My boyfriend and I took a majestic stroll through streams and budding flowers. The ecstasy of the warm spring day filled us with a renewed sense of hope. The path was steep and challenging (the orange path), like the days of our lives. I even heard a young child exclaim "I feel so in touch with nature!" This path brings... 更多
The park is a nice park. There is a lot of hiking to do here. Be warned: some of the trails are steep. If you can make it to the scenic vista, the view is awesome. It's the kind of treck to do if you are in decent shape.
