A peaceful getaway with Ithaca city limits. And a pretty good climb to get started.

This park has a number of trails that range in distance, difficulty and incline. There is a LOT more than 1.1 miles available to you. Kid and pet friendly.

this was an awesome hike. yes the road to the trailhead is not plowed in the winter but only a short extra 0.5mi to it but it socks that it's uphill after your hike down the mountain. beautiful scenery and very well kept at the top. loved this one, very easy going but some steep parts to keep you busy!

Great hike. However it was hard and there was ice 90% of the journey to Poet's Ledge. January probably isn't your best bet to go but if you go in the winter be very careful with the ice. Overall it was a great experience.

I've hiked this countless times it is by far one of my favorite hikes. The views are breathtaking and there's many other trails to other peaks. I've even hiked up with my one month old, it's a fairly easy hike only one part is difficult near the top. I would highly recommend it to bring kids on. I always go up through mt Riga it's much shorter and not challenging.

I went here last summer. This was by far the best place I have gone so far. I have not come across any place that can beat Sam's Point. The ice caves are gorgeous and the trails to the waterfall, even though it was long, was absolutely breathtaking. The terrain changes and the views are just out of this world. I would recommend this for anyone who loves being out in nature, stunning views and doesn't mind walking a lot and for a long time.

it was nice and easy hike. good for young kids. It was not a maintenance trail during the winter but nothing nice snow boots can't handle.

I really enjoyed this hike. There was a ton to see and the falls were beautiful. We went in January, and the trails were quite icey. My husband and I both slipped. Only one steep area.

Eh. It was over very quickly and not a lot to see.

The views here were great and my husband really enjoyed exploring the cave. But it is the city of Rochester and there were several syringes laying on the ground when we got out of the car. Freaked me out a little since we had our kids with us.

Loads of great pine needle filled trails. Horse trails get sandy, but the white trail is ideal for running. Guard booth off of Sunrise Hwy to Vets and back is about 7 miles. Bug spray a must in the summer.
