Most of the Paugussett Trail on this hike beginning at Indian Well State Park follows a rugged ridgeline through some remarkable old-growth stands of oak and hemlock. Views of the Housatonic River Valley will feature most prominently as you gain elevation. The Indian Well falls spur takes you to the entrance of a foot path that leads up to a medium-size waterfall with a swimming hole at the bottom, popular during summer months. If you visit Indian Well State Park in the summer, you’ll notice right away that swimming is the main attraction here. Situated on the western banks of another dammed-up portion of the Housatonic River, the park’s large sandy beach attracts crowds from surrounding towns.
