Went there late February. Unfortunately the trail that travels along the falls was closed due to ice. Still a nice stop in the winter if you are in the Ithaca area. If you have to travel wait till Spring/Summer. For our full review visit us @ ExploreCNYTrails.com
A waterfall? Try several. Absolutely stunning. Probably 10 waterfalls on this trail alone
A peaceful getaway with Ithaca city limits. And a pretty good climb to get started.
The hike is extremely steep for the first half a mile or so, but it flattens out a bit once you get going. When the river is drier, you can walk across to the other side and explore, or just follow the river itself upstream. It's beautiful hike!
this was so much fun. long hike lots of up hill very beautiful
Lots of steps, but worth the climb. Not much water flowing, but still a very beautiful and enjoyable hike.
Short but pretty not as nice as Robert h treman
VERY enjoyable and beautiful!! The stairs are definitely a climb and a bit challenging if you're an asthmatic like me but the climb is SOOO worth it. There are several waterfalls along with natural pools (careful though the rock floor can be slippery) overall I loved the time that was spent here.
Gorgeous falls and a really well maintained trails
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!
Simply a great trail
