Lovers Leap Hike - New Milford 5/4/2014

Lover’s Leap State Park is located in southern New Milford. The Housatonic River flows through the park and forms the headwaters of Lake Lillinonah. This historic 140 acre park began in 1971. The park contains a breathtaking river gorge, made famous by the Indian legend of Chief Waramaug’s beautiful daughter, Princess Lillinonah. She canoed to her death into the “Great Falls” when her white lover did not return after visiting his people. Upon his return, he saw her in the rapids and leaped to his death in an attempt to save her.
