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.

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

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.
