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.

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.

Just went yesterday. Hiked the Gorge trail and took the South Rim trail back. Wish there had been more water. Definite re-do in the spring or winter if it's open. The South Rim was boring. Nothing to see and not "foot friendly" definitely tighten boots before going down. $7.00 entrance fee.
