Enders State Forest

Consisting of a series of waterfalls, Enders State Forest is best enjoyed after rain.

When visiting in fall, the colours of the leaves were an array of yellows, oranges and reds. The trail is a 0.8-mile loop (or 1.2 KM) and makes for a romantic afternoon walk.

When visiting, we only saw one other person walking during our time there. If you’re after a peaceful walk during your stay in Granby, this is the place for you!
