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.

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.
