Want To Hike Map

This waterfall is truly one of a kind! So amazing. Hike in the winter is a bit sloppy and area around the falls is icy.

Pretty muddy this time of year, there were times it felt more like a swim than a hike! But that just added to the adventure of this otherwise moderate hike. Nice view of Fall Creek at some spots. Avoid the edge when up on the ridge--saw a tree fall off the hillside which illustrates the erosion that is continually happening there.

One of my favorite trails. Short and not very challenging but great views. Well trafficked area so expect to have company. Great for a all ranges of skill.

Great hike. Awesome views. Easy to follow. Trail markers every few hundred feet.

Awesome place!

Beautiful forest trail. There was 12-18 inches of snow on the trail the day we did it, so really slow going. Covered in snow, it was hard in some places to figure out where the trail was. We've done this trail in the summer as well and the trail is easy to find when it's not covered in snow. Note that the trail is marked, both at the trailhead and on the trail markers, as the Beehunter trail. The full loop is also about 6.5 miles rather than 5.3.

Nice and easy hike. Very icy. Micro spikes made it a breeze.

45 degrees out made for a beautiful February hike. A little slippery. Trail mark well for one half. The other half, it is necessary to pay attention.

As advertised, very easy, but an unbelievably scenic stroll. Some dirt trials so wear boots if raining

Easy, heavily trafficked trail (most likely see an abundance of kids and dogs). The flame is really interesting to see, much more enjoyable when there aren’t other people to get in the way of some cool pictures. Other than that it feels just like a walk in a park.

Was worried that the trail would be too slippery and icy with the warmer weather during our hike, but wasn't bad at all. Be prepared for lots of people and dogs, but a nice quick hike with beautiful scenery that never gets old!

I've visited this park twice and it never disappoints. This is a must in the fall!

Lot of tree's down, kind of difficult snowshoeing.

still a great hike during the winter.

Beautiful trails! I was there on 1/1/18 and the falls were gorgeous!

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end.

Great trail just need better markers.

Loved it, truly breathtaking the rock walls are Huge! Any one w camera would love this trail I went my family, at the end of the trail you see the waterfall up close.

I do this trail every time I come to Ithaca. love this wide dirt trail easy walk to beautiful fall.
the trail at the base walks you to the lower platform but then at the top of the hill there is a scenic parking area to get the above view of the falls

My favorite place to hike. Boy Scout trail is pretty intense.

This isn’t really a trail. It’s more of a scenic viewing area. There’s a Little Rock chair right next to the falls situated in the middle of a residential area. But it’s beautiful nonetheless and totally worth checking out. (June 2017)

Pleasant forest trail. It gets quite muddy, so probably better to do when the weather has been dry. I added on the eternal flame spur when I did it. Last third of the loop follows the road, so it's a bit less interesting.

An easy hike. Lots of people were there the day I did it. Old, young, dogs, etc. A little bit of climbing was involved, and plan on getting a little wet after a good rainfall.

The falls is fantastic -quick incredible, but this isn’t a hike.It a simple walk to the falls.

Go after a few days of rainfall! Makes all the difference

Great trail, fantastic views

Beautiful park! I plan on going back when the upper falls construction is completed. The overlooks are gorgeous!

We walked this trail yesterday with our son and chihuahua. It had a nice elevation and loop around. It was a beautiful day and nice views of forest, but basically all the same view:)
