Taughannock Falls State Park's namesake waterfall is one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Northeast. Taughannock Falls plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge. Gorge and rim trails offer spectacular views from above the falls and from below at the end of the gorge trail. Campsites and cabins overlook Cayuga Lake, with marina, boat launch and beach nearby. A multi-use trail--hiking, cross-country skiing--winds past sledding slopes and natural skating ponds. Boat Launch Site not suitable for any type of sailboat. The park also offers organized activities including tours through the Taughannock Gorge and summer concerts along the lakefront.

Loved it, truly breathtaking the rock walls are Huge! Any one w camera would love this trail I went my family, at the end of the trail you see the waterfall up close.

I do this trail every time I come to Ithaca. love this wide dirt trail easy walk to beautiful fall.
the trail at the base walks you to the lower platform but then at the top of the hill there is a scenic parking area to get the above view of the falls

Go after a few days of rainfall! Makes all the difference

It’s definitely a decent hike. We started on the North Rim, went to the Gorge Trail. We hiked back up through the Sound Rim trail back to the car. 5.2 miles in total. The views are amazing and there are most definitely smaller and more exciting trails to take.

Easy walk to the falls. Be sure to visit the overlook as well.
