Chasing Waterfalls: Duck Pond Dam Falls

For all the posts in the Chasing Waterfalls Series, go here.

Prologue: Inspired by the 2021 Hallmark romantic movie Chasing Waterfalls started my own blog, featuring the local waterfalls in the State of Connecticut where I live, and also may be any waterfalls that I might come across in my trips around America and the World. The film was released in July, as part of their “Spring Fling” lineup. The lead actress, Cindy Busby, plays the part of Amy Atwater, a photo journalist who goes to a remote town to find a mythical waterfall. Her co-star Christopher Russell, plays the part of Mark North, the guide at the lodge where she stays in while visiting the town.

Now I am chasing these majestic and gorgeous waterfalls. Next up is Duck Pond Dam Falls in the town of Milford, CT

As part of the Sky’s The Limit 20 hikes challenge that I finished recently, the last of the hikes I went to was Osbornedale State Park in the town for Derby, Connecticut. After the hike, me and my friend decided to venture to Duck Pond Dam Falls in the center of the town of Milford, CT which was only a few miles away from Osbornedale State Park.

These falls are formed by the Wepawaug River that rises in the town of Woodbridge and flows through Orange and Milford towns. When it reaches Milford, it turns and flows off the rocky dam in the center of the town right behind the city hall.

Here it flows under the stone Memorial Bridge before discharging itself into the Milford Harbor on Long Island Sound. The stone Memorial Bridge was built across the river in Milford in 1899 to commemorate Milford’s history and bears the names of Milford’s first settlers.

Everything was crisp and bright from the rain the previous day; and the sunshine that peeked up right at the time of our photoshoot added a layer of shine to our pictures.

Every direction we saw, the falls, the colors, the nature surrounding made a picturesque background. We spent an hour around the entire area and yet it felt not enough.
