Little Falls is a township in Passaic County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 census, the township's population was 14,432,[1][2][3] reflecting an increase of 3,577 (+33.0%) from the 10,855 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 439 (-3.9%) from the 11,294 counted in the 1990 Census. It is located about from New York City.

Little Falls was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 2, 1868, from portions of Acquackanonk Township. On March 25, 1914, portions of the township were taken to form the borough of West Paterson (now Woodland Park).

The Morris Canal, once an important artery of trade and transportation between the Delaware and Hudson rivers, wound its way through the town, and vestiges of it still remain.
