This place is incredible in terms of visual aesthetic. It is so beautiful. The Falls itself had me in awe of the power it generated. My dog had the best time exploring all of the new scents and sights. I'd just suggest being careful on the steps, as they get slippery.

I am newly relocated to this area. I have loved to find great places for a walk through nature and this was certainly the first jewel. This place provides you with a sense of inspiration and just allows your mind to run free. I can't wait to visit again!

Short, easy and beautiful walk to the falls.

Great quick stop just on the side of the road in a residential area.

Spectacular waterfalls.

First time at this park. Lots of good hills. Lots of choices. But lots of leaves hiding roots this time of year.

Waterfall after waterfall after waterfall! The gorge trail delivers endless beauty. Our dog loved it too. Took the rim trail back which gave great sunset light through the trees. Overall great walk in in the park lots of majesty for minimal to moderate effort.

It was a great trail, well maintained. More styled to bring your kids along.

Nice easy going hike

Great for everyone who wants to be outside

A charming and leisurely hike. There are a few sets of somewhat steep stairs, but the climbs are brief. Beautiful waterfalls throughout. A small picnic area at the top before you head back down makes for a great break for kids.

This was a beautiful, unique trail. The combination of man made structures and natural gorge were impressive to say the least. It felt like walking through a canyon built in biblical times on. The gorge trail and the rim trail had the most beautiful and literally breathtaking stair cases. I ran the 4.7 miles starting from the cabins and found that route excellent since the gorge trail was much more scenic and less challenging so it was a good way to cool down and end the run. Careful with the slippery stairs and maybe try doing this hike at the end of the day while the sun is just setting and rays of light drift through the lightly wooded forest and highlight the falls.

I never get tired of going there. The water is such a beautiful color, and so clear. The trail is very flat and easy to do. There's a great picnic area and beach too.

Hiked gorge to top and then took rim trail down- amazing falls on gorge trail A rim was quiet forest and so peaceful- lots of steps especially on gorge trail

FYI currently closed due to flooding and washouts. Will they again next time.

Great trail! I wouldn’t classify it as moderate closer to upper easy than moderate. However it was very beautiful the entire time! We started with the Rim Trail which merged into the Bear TrIl, then loops around the Lake and got back into the Gorge Trail. Took about 1 hour and 35 minutes or so. We had our dogs with us a long the way. There weren’t too many opportunities to let them off leash because of the occasional drops from the river or service roads but they still enjoyed their time.

Well maintained trail. A little steep in spots if you have a young/older hiker. A quick walk with more than one great view of these impressive falls. Definitely recommend!

Its not much of a hike but the glen is nice!! Its not crowded and a nice swimming hole!! Water was super cold but I enjoyed my time

Really loved this hike. Lots of stairs at some points but just challenging enough to make it not feel like “a walk in the park”. Tons of places to stop and put your feet in the water, beautiful waterfalls and the best part was at the end of the hike you end up at a swimming area and we swam up to the waterfall. Water was cold but totally worth it! Definitely bring your bathing suits. Very cool experience.

Nice gravel path but the mosquitoes we're brutal. It might be better when it's colder out.

WOW! the steps for buttermilk Falls up are pretty strenuous but definitely worth it. The whole gorge is made up of waterfall after waterfall cascades. I would say moderate/easy. I am four months pregnant and we were able to do the hike. We went a little slower than normal with some stops but it was absolutely do able. I did get stung by a yellow jacket so if you or someone your hiking with is allergic bring an epi pen.

A lovely hike that ended up being a little over 5 miles. Nicely maintained trails. A bit crowded in the beginning but it thins out eventually. The plethora of stairs provided a nice challenge.

This is my favorite trail in Ithaca. Aside from being dog friendly it’s not too difficult-some stairs here or there. Beautiful views all around. If you come in the summer time you can go in the water. So much fun!

Beautiful sites but I found the trail to short of a walk. Easy trail to follow.

Beautiful scenery and views of the lakes all around. Wished we could swim in the lake but it’s only allowed in designated area at the beginning of Green Lake. There is the option of Kayak if interested with the addition of the cleaning ones which is a plus.

Beautiful and not too hard hiking trail. You need a good pair of shoes tho. It can get muddy and slippery at some places.
