Best viewing from the blue-blazed section of the Finger Lakes Trail. 1.2mi round trip. There is a steep, strenuous 500 foot climb. Open year round, though use extreme caution during winter.

Tougher/steeper hike than expected. Many of the falls were dried up, but the lowest point had a nice area of water to romp around in. Good exercise on the ascent back up. Have some nice ledges to sit on looking down into the gorges.

Relatively short trail with great views. Dog-friendly. A few nice ledges overlooking the water to rest on if necessary. Take the time to stop and play in the water at the bottom!

Once you find it, it's a nice hidden gem! Fairly steep incline on the way out but shady enough that it's not too bad. Many picturesque spots to stop and just appreciate if you need little breaks.

Nice trail though no water this time. Part is closed for hunting season but can easily be rerouted. Going to come back and check out in the winter I bet it is awesome all 4 seasons.
