This is an amazing hike. The beginning is tough as it is a basically a quarter mile flight of stairs. However, the climb is totally worth it with each pool and waterfall more beautiful than the next. The bear trail portion leaves the gorge and follows the stream. The trail is well maintained and markings are easy to follow. You can make the trail a loop by crossing the gorge in one of two locations to hit the rim trail. We choose to stick to the Gorge trail.

This was a very nice trail with lots of different scenery to enjoy along the trail. We started out early but mid morning the weather got very hot, hazy and humid. Take lots of hydration if you plan to hike this during the late summer months. The water pools are amazing in the morning sun.

Went there late February. Unfortunately the trail that travels along the falls was closed due to ice. Still a nice stop in the winter if you are in the Ithaca area. If you have to travel wait till Spring/Summer. For our full review visit us @ ExploreCNYTrails.com

A waterfall? Try several. Absolutely stunning. Probably 10 waterfalls on this trail alone

A peaceful getaway with Ithaca city limits. And a pretty good climb to get started.
