November 12, 2021 – Devil’s Hopyard State Park and Chapman Falls – Connecticut

On Thursday Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Devil’s Hopyard State Park in East Haddam, Connecticut. Devil’s Hopyard State Park is a 1,000-acre park that includes: hiking trails, a covered bridge, camping, picnic areas, and Chapman Falls. There are endless tales about the title of this park, but none have been verified.

We had a refreshing Adventure to Devil’s Hopyard State Park, one of our several Adventures of the day. I had been there once many years ago with Shadow and Wilma but have had difficulty gathering photographs from that day. I was pleased to arrive to find few visitors and off we went. We first arrived at Chapman Falls, just gorgeous. I do not recall it being so large and flowing, so I was quite pleased to see this lovely, roaring site. We enjoyed the area for some time before heading down the trail. From there we explored the pond, covered bridge, and various trails in the park. I was surprised to see some pleasant colors leftover from Fall. It was a perfect Autumn Day for a hike. So glad I could return to Devil’s Hopyard State Park and Chapman Falls today (Rating: 4).
