A picturesque 167 foot waterfall is the main attraction of Chittenango Falls State Park! Glacial sculpting over 400 million year-old bedrock is responsible for this scenic feature. An interesting variety of both plants and wildlife may be found along the trails. Visitors can view the falls from the top, walk the winding trail into the gorge view the falls from the footbridge and return to the top along the small trail on the opposite side of the gorge. Activities include fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Great for tween boys who love to explore. Really a gem in @syracuse

Super easy hike & the falls here are absolutely beautiful !

Super easy short hike but worth it the waterfall is breath taking it should be on everyone’s bucket list

The falls are very close to parking. You just go down a bunch of stairs. But there are great trails that are really well marked. Easy hiking, I went on a rainy, cold fall day and no one else was out there! Awesome!

Don't go in the morning hours if you're planning on taking photos, as the light is not conducive. Still a gorgeous little hike!

Great trail for taking pictures, the waterfall is huge. We hiked with a 6 year old and a baby in a backpack. I would agree the "easy" could be misleading- it can be easy if you want to stay around the top where the parking lot is, and enjoy the view from the top of the waterfall but it could be very difficult for someone with joint problems to get to the bottom of the falls and back up- lots of stairs or switchbacks. That being said the trail was well maintained when we were there and "easy" for our six year old to navigate and the footing was good- not slippery or wet. There is no swimming allowed, there is a small park with playground and bathroom facilities at the top near the parking lot as well. Would recommend going at least once as the waterfall is the largest I've seen on a natural hike (excluding Niagara Falls).

One of my favorite waterfalls to visit every year. It's beautiful no matter what the season!

Hiked trail down to Chittenango creek...perfect for a relaxing walk with our dog.
$5.00 admission per xar is well worth the overlook of falls and several outreaching trails to mwadows and creek.

Looked beautiful from above today. Honestly, we didn't get to hike it today as the Gorge Trail is currently closed due to damage from a recent storm (according to staff there). Please check the state website to see if it is still closed before venturing out that way. We will try again another day :)

5 stars for impressive falls. If you're looking for a good hike or falls you can swim in, this is not what you want. Swimming is prohibited here because of fragile wildlife. Also, be mindful of the state park fee to see these falls ($5 maybe?) at least on the weekends.
