Very nice hike! People jump in the water at different points! I am not that adventurous and will not be trying that any time soon!

Too bad there is a drought in the area, it would be fanatastic. But now only a little stream...

The falls were amazing! There are a lot of stairs but you can bypass a lot of them by going to the lower park entrance

Beautiful gorge hike. NY is experiencing a bit of a drought so the falls were not that impressive. However, the gorge itself is well worth the hike.

Just gorgeous, family friendly, a must visit if you're in Ithaca. Did it at least three times while in Ithaca.

Cloudy cool day but perfect for a hike. Not too busy, but very busy in the summer. The gorge trail is nearly all steps and the rim trail back down is gentle sloping. Beautiful falls and pools along the way.

The trail is very scenic with some tough spots. We made it with a 7 & 10 year old.
