Trail closed as of 9/17 indefinitely for maintenance

Great trail for the whole family.

Nice short trail. I would highly recommend this quick trail if you are in Ithaca. There is really only one steel section and the trail is very well maintained and seems to have been recently renovated. Beautiful area right bear Cornell. I would rate this more on the easy side versus moderate.

still closed 8/8/18

Sadly the trail is closed as of noon on 7/28. Looking forward to seeing it when it is open.

****As of 0900 on 07/28/18, this trail is closed****

The hardest part about getting to this trail is finding parking. We found plenty of parking on Farm Street and walked about 5 minuets to get to the starting point. Beautiful falls with lots of photography opportunities. A shout out to the person who was patrolling the streambed to gently encourage law breakers to get out of the water as several people where attempting to get into the water regardless of all the 'no swimming' signage. Was neat to see all the college kids streaming along the trail and taking advantage of this part of Cornell University.

While visiting my cousin in Ithaca she took me on this awesome trail. we parked at the top and hiked down. At the bottom we stopped in town shopped a little bit and had a beer before heading backup to the top. Water level is a bit lower than normal for this time of year. Awesome views nice clear path/steps you don't constantly have to stare at your feet to make sure you're not gonna trip over roots etc.

Great hike and easy to get too off the road

I hiked Cascadilla Falls after three days of heavy rain and the water was nearly overflowing its banks. Despite the heavy flow of water and the raging torrent, the trail felt sturdy and safe.

Flat gravel walking/running and biking trail that is quite busy. I walk the dogs and they enjoy it, not much to view but a nice walk nonetheless

Waterfall at the trail head is beautiful, however the gorge trail is closed for the winter.

Great trail along the pipe, 3 waterfalls, very peaceful dirt trail. there is a steep hill trail across the street from the parking area a quarter of a mile to see another water fall. alot of dogs not on a leash but all very friendly

Too many people and not keeping their dogs on a leash. Twice our dog was attacked because of this

pretty walk along the creek
when you want to get to top of last waterfall that's where it is most strenuous but worth the ☮️ and beauty

Unfortunately this trail was partially closed during our visit (near Stewart Ave) so plan ahead. We did manage to see a lot of it by coming from Cornell's side - and what we saw was lovely. Just wish the signage was a bit clearer regarding the closure.

Just beautiful

Beautiful scenery

absolutely beautiful I went a couple of days after a big rain storm and the falls were great

Great, quick trail. The views of the multiple waterfalls going up are outstanding. Went at about 930 on a Saturday morning – – only a few people on the trail at that time. If you get tired easily, start at the bottom and turn around at Cornell University.

Beautiful trail full of scenic views of cascading water. The trail presents a low to moderate fitness challenge based on your own fitness level. Be prepared to climb some steep stairs, but, well worth it. This trail is rather short though, however, it connects with the Upper Gorge trail if you want a little more.
