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.

An easy hike to the falls along a gravel path. Falls are spectacular. You can walk along the riverbed, if the water level is low, and get a unique viewpoint you cannot get from the trail. Bring water shoes if you want to do this.

Spectacular waterfall! I recommend to get there before 8AM to avoid crowds. The sun lights the fall by 9AM in August!

Beautiful view of the waterfall. The walk is extremely easy and relatively short, but the view alone makes up for it. Perfect background for pictures that want to truly encapsulate Ithaca's beauty.

This is a nice hike around the top of the gorge to the main viewing spot for the falls. We saw a falcon which was amazing.

Very easy stroll. Wide path. Lovely waterfall. Easily combined w another state park on same day.
