Upcoming Event: 

WADSWORTH FALLS STATE PARK    1:00 PM   Thursday November 5, 2020 

721 Wadsworth Street — Middletown     Cost is FREE – Bring your own lunch!

With over 250 acres of fields, woods, and trails, it is famous for its Wadsworth Falls, located in the Park’s southwest corner.  Join us for a hike through this beautiful park! Meet at the Park’s Main Entrance at 10 am and we will walk along the Red Trail to the Falls, and back again. The trail is wide and has a hard-packed dirt surface, so please wear sturdy shoes!  Weather permitting, we will picnic afterwards.  There is ample parking and available toilets. Admission is free.
