Fillmore Glen State Park is an oasis of cool, dense woods crowding into a long, narrow gorge. Its hiking trails offer spectacular views, unique geological formations, including five waterfalls, and a botanically rich glen. The park has 60 campsites, a stream-fed swimming pool and fishing in the Owasco Lake inlet. In the winter, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are permitted on unplowed roads. For those who prefer the luxuries of home, the park offers a full service cottage located on the shore of Cayuga Lake at Long Point. Cottage amenities include a kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator, sink, full bath, hot water; electricity, bedroom with double bed and dressers, main room with a sleeper sofa, furniture, dining table with chairs, a wood stove, boat dock, picnic table, fire ring and grill and a small lawn area.

Did not think it was moderate ...not hard at all. Beautiful place!

This was one of my favorite trails. A must see

Best trail is the gorge, at end of trail go up to north rim trail and head to dam and you'll find the biggest falls. Very enjoyable, pup got good workout 2.

Beautiful and well maintained trail that has 3 main options of hiking trails. We hiked the gorge trail early morning and the hiked the north rim trail later in the day. I definitely recommend walking to the top falls. It is in my opinion the best falls overall.

I loved this hike! We started on the North Rim trail, which was smart because we got all of the inclines out of the way first, went towards the dam for another waterfall, then followed the Gorge trail back. The gorge trail was so beautiful!! It follows the river and you walk over numerous bridges and pass by numerous waterfalls. So many photographic opportunities. I will be be hiking this trail again for sure!

It was beautiful day for a hike! We had previously driven down to try to hike much earlier in the year and were too early, the trails weren't open. Today we hiked the gorge trail and the North Rim trail to the dam. The views were incredible. The waterfalls and forest trails were so perfect. A nice moderate hike, that you can take at your own pace. We'll definitely be back!

Nice trail with good elevation changes for a shorter distance. We took our dog with us over the weekend and she loved the trail. We come here often, and even though it can be busy at times, it's always both a mentally relaxing and physically active hike that we thoroughly enjoy!

Such a great place to let nature take over your thoughts

Great 1.5 hour hike on beautiful fall day.

Hiked up the gorge trail and came down the south rim trail.

The gorge trail was beautiful, even though there wasn't much water flowing. It was worth the drive and worth the effort. There was plenty of parking, nice bathrooms and a nice picnic area.

Beautiful trail, we started on the “gorge trail” which has 8 bridges that cross the dry creek. We did some creek walk but that was to get better pictures. Then we planned to go to the dam, but we never made it unless we just did not find it. We did not take the “north rim trail” back due to us looking for the dam and us ended up on the snowmobile trail to lope back. In total, it was a 5 miles loop around.

Love this spot!!!

One of my family's favorite hiking trails! We have been going for the past 4 years. My youngest was 4 when she started. Easy beautiful hike!

Great hike. We took the gorge trail. Very scenic. Easy walk. Trail used to lead to dam and pond but no longer does. Beautiful walking path with several bridges. This is a state park so there is an entrance fee.

We camped as well as hiked the north rim trail, south rim trail and part of the gorge trail. Beautiful trails nicely shaded but starting at north rim is pretty steep.

I had the best day hiking here. I love the slate rock formation.

Both south rim and north trail are very steep. make sure your on your game. great hike though!

Hiked the South Rim Trail which was pretty steep to the dam. then hiked the north rim trail back down to the park which was very steep towards the end decent. views are ok, however the gorge trail is closed. not sure when it will reopen but definitely plan on hiking it again!!!

One of my favorite hikes! The swimming hole feels amazing after a long hike! Strongly Recommend here! I believe there is an entrance fee however.

Stunning!! We first took the south rim trail and found out that it was a lot of work (pretty steep) for little reward (nothing to see) but when we went to the gorge trail we were blown away. Beautiful park. Looking forward to returning in the summer.

Beautiful trail, I really enjoyed this area. I am usually opposed to tourist type areas where I will run into a lot of people on the trail but I went during the week and only passed a couple of people the whole time. We brought our dog and he was able to be off leash and enjoy the outdoors a good majority of the time. My only complaint is that some of the gorge trail was shut down but I am hoping that will be cleared up for the next time I go back.

well the bridge was closed from 4-5 so we drove to the damn to see that with a beautiful fall with a rainbow in the bottom then went back to see the rest of the Glen. was pretty, trail well marked no wondering allowed here at all

Beautiful, fairly easy walk on a beautiful summer day. The Cowshed falls are amazing.

Fantastic hike! I did it with my somewhat hiking experienced four year old and he required a snack half way but was able to do the whole hike! Beautiful! We will be returning ! Gorge trail is still closed though but I understand that it is being fixed (erosion problems)

Another Beautiful Park with a lovely trail.

Monday, January 05, 2015

We love this park and this trail. The first time we were here was for a car show. We didn't even know there was a trail until we met some friends at the show who told us about the trail. After the show we hit the trail and were hooked. We have been back once more so far but plan on many more times in the future. Beautiful scenery, waterfalls, and trails are groomed well. It is a vigorous hike but very rewarding.
