This is not a trail. There is a parking lot and you walk about 100 yards to get a good look at the falls. The falls are huge and beautiful. They are interestingly located in a residential neighborhood.

These falls are with in a few minutes drive of other falls such as cascadilla

These falls have a fun little sitting area made of rock chairs and a rock table at the base of the falls

PLEASE obey the NO SWIMMING signs!! There is a sign at the falls entrance that blatantly states you can die swimming here and sure enough, earlier this year a local college student did

Super easy 'hike' and all this time being in the Ithaca area, I had no idea this waterfall existed. Light walk that will get you right up to bottom of the cascading water. Popular spot for beginners, but still a must see for anyone!

This is a very short walk to the falls. The falls were amazing.

There's barely any walking involved to see the waterfall. It was breath taking!

C'mon. You can see the falls from the street. The trail is nearly flat. There's a great spot for a picnic. Why wouldn't you do this. The falls are GORGEOUS.

Nice short walk to the falls from the parking lot. There were a lot of people swimming when I went. Beautiful Falls.
