Very simple, easy walk to a small waterfall. These falls have a fun little sitting area made of rock chairs and a rock table at the base of the falls, and they are also with in a few minutes drive of other falls such as Cascadilla Falls. No swimming.

Nice little walk. Gorgeous falls but not a hike or worth a whole day trip just to see it, nice though if you’re in the area! And close to other local sights and waterfalls. Usually pretty busy since it’s in Ithaca and right by Cornell University and so easily accessible

Not really a trail, just a short path, but worth it to stop and see the waterfall if you are in the area.

This trail isn’t to much of a hike, it’s more of a view then anything. Would recommend if you want to get some beautiful pictures!

Extremely easy and worth the view. The parking lot though has huge potholes coming in so be careful with low riding cars.
