Too many people and not keeping their dogs on a leash. Twice our dog was attacked because of this

pretty walk along the creek
when you want to get to top of last waterfall that's where it is most strenuous but worth the ☮️ and beauty

Took this hike in late February. Trail could use some maintenance but over all not bad. Definitely worth checking it out.

This is an awesome place and one of my favorites when I just can't decide where to hike. Easy areas or challenging areas depending on what you feel like. You can jump across the street to the Wells falls area and do two great hikes in a day. Highly recommend this area for am easy or strenuous hike depending on what route you take.

I did the short loop with a jogging stroller. it was beautiful and quite easy. it looks like the longer trail would be hard for a stroller so I will be using my carry pack

Pretty trail, with a nice lake at the end. I tried exploring a pretty waterfall and a trail from there but ended up getting lost. Good trail for a jog.

Pretty good trail. Lots of offshoots and places to explore. Once you get to know it it's a great jog. Many waterfalls and places to swim

Great hike along six mile creek. Seeing the waterfalls at the reservoir was a nice treat as well. If you fancy cliff jumping and swimming then bring your suits ;-) terrain was of no issue.

Great hike not far from the center of Ithaca. Within walking distance. The numerous waterfalls are quite spectacular. Most of the trails are pretty tame. You have to search a bit for some vertical stuff. Trails are very well marked and worn!
