First time here! There are many many stairs, but the entire walk is beside the falls. Absolutely beautiful !!
Parking is tough, and if you have bad knees/hips, bring a walking aid to help up the stairs.

Almost no parking, so explore the side streets around a bit first. The entire hike is short, but stairs so I wouldn't try if just beginning hiking. I'm still sore. Beautiful waterfalls stuck right in downtown.

A nice short walk up a set of stairs to the top of the falls and back down; a little over 1.1 miles and quite nice even on a cloudy day... Nice waterfalls all along the trail!

Not for "very experienced outdoorsman". I walk this trail about every day and while the uphill has many stairs, my 80 year old mom did it. The moderately fit can handle it easily. It is all paved with hand rails and such and is a beautiful and short jaunt. Not open in the winter. Take a lunch and eat by a waterfall.

Great trail- goes from the bottom of Cornell's campus down to a neighborhood near downtown. Wonderful for a scenic commute during the spring, summer and fall!
