Robert H. Treman State Park is an area of wild beauty, with the rugged gorge called Enfield Glen as its scenic highlight. Winding trails follow the gorge past 12 waterfalls, including the 115-foot Lucifer Falls, to where visitors can see a mile-and-a-half down the wooded gorge as it winds its way to the lower park. Campers can choose from tent or RV sites or cabins. Enjoy nine miles of hiking trails, or swim in a stream-fed pool beneath a waterfall. Swimming is allowed in lifeguarded area only.

Warm January day helped dry the one open trail. Good afternoon walk.

Waterfalls after waterfalls!! Beautiful trail for hiking and trail running. Very slushy at some places and slippery at others during this time of the year. Gorge trail was closed due to the snow and ice but the rim trail portion of the loop is open and accessible.

So much beauty in such a short hike!

Spectacular waterfalls.

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.

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

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.

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!

Nice trail. Very scenic. Lots of stairs to climb.

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

This is a beautiful hike! Lots of stairs. There are several places along the trail where you can stop and dip your feet in the water. In the middle of the week its not too crowded. The whole trail is dog friendly, however if you're bringing a smaller dog they might have issues with the stairs on the Rim Trail towards the top as they are steep and there are alot of them. Bugs weren't too bad but you should plan for bug spray. Most of the trail has a canopy overhead so unless you're very fair skinned, sunscreen isnt really needed. At the upper park, there are plenty of picnic tables and charcoal grills to utilize.

Superb trail. Nice gorge and falls. Very moderate difficulties level. Anyone could do it. well maintained path with wood and/or stone stairs

Nice hike / walk. No climbing and not too difficult. Less than 3 hours round trip including several stops. Beautiful views of the falls. Started at the lower lot and went all the way to the upper lot, then back. Took the rim trail up and gorge trail back.

After all the rain the Southern Tier received this week, water levels were high but not exorbitantly so - you could still see the shale formations under the stream and behind the waterfalls, and many tributary creeks were flowing in the woods. Perfectly gorgeous hike on a beautiful, cool, party-sunny day, a rarity this summer! It was an excellent workout, too. I would very highly recommend these trails, and hope to come back soon.

Amazing trail. I was initially disappointed that it was raining my only day in Ithaca but turned out for the best. There were hardly any people to contend with and it cooled me off on what couldn’t been a tough hike/trail run. I did a lollipop loop where I started at the south lot took a left halfway through to get the rim trail and then got back on the gorge trail at the north lot. Another advantage to parking the south lot was a cold refreshing dip afterwards!

We started from the south lot so we did all the elevation first, a lot of steps and inclines in this direction but not terrible. The views are spectacular from the rim and the gorge side once alongside the falls. The step on the rim trail took a good bit of effort but I was looking for that. If you’re looking for an easier route than you could Park 2 cars, one at each lot and start from the north to mostly skip the inclines. Really amazing spot and well maintained.

Fantastic hike today with a refreshing dip at the end at the lower falls ... highly recommend this spot if you are in the Finger Lakes region.

Unexpectedly beautiful and unique. Well worth it

Very lovely views, lots of nice spots to sit along the way. SOOO MANY STEPS! Picnic area was very nice. One of the better waterfall hikes upstate.

Lots of vertical change. Trail heavily trafficked. Not to bad around dusk.

Absolutely beautiful trail tucked in middle of the city. Hard to find this much scenery in such a short trail.

It was very fun but very heavily trafficked.

The falls are magical and there’s great picture spots all along the way.

It’s not really a trail and it can get overly crowded fast. Better off going through the entire park and finding your own swimming spot.

Each water fall is fantastic and there are multiple spots to take a dip. The stone work and stairs make it seem like some pathway to a castle out of a movie.

beautiful scenic trails. started at lower rim trail ro upper rim trail. would not have seen Lucifer Falls had we not continued on upper trail. took the gorge trail back down. moderate for beginners, but not impossible.

Beautiful hike- just too populated and the trails are narrow. We completed the entire hike- all 5.6 miles, just out of preference, I would opt another trail purely for the sake of ease of manipulation of crowds.

Great trail! We did the Rim Trail all the way up to the upper level. There's tons of spots for great pictures. Some people venture off the trails (Although, I'm not sure it's allowed per park signs) and waded/ sat in the rivers. We wore boots even though a lot of the trail was paved/gravel, an old pair of tennis shoes would be fine. There are some inclines if you go up the Rim Trail to the top, which can leave you winded. Traffic wasn't terrible either until you got to the actual falls, where people were taking pictures.
We were told by some couples to avoid taking the right at one of the splits, as there is no stairs and its just an uphill climb (more difficult). Once at the top we came back down at turned right at the bridge that has a gate on it. After crossing the bridge, it will take you down to the swimming hole where there is lifeguards and a diving board right in front of the falls. I wish we would have brought swimsuits for this. Definitely pack some river clothes, swimsuits if you have kids, its something they would definitely enjoy.
