An easy hike to the falls along a gravel path. Falls are spectacular. You can walk along the riverbed, if the water level is low, and get a unique viewpoint you cannot get from the trail. Bring water shoes if you want to do this.

Spectacular waterfall! I recommend to get there before 8AM to avoid crowds. The sun lights the fall by 9AM in August!

Beautiful view of the waterfall. The walk is extremely easy and relatively short, but the view alone makes up for it. Perfect background for pictures that want to truly encapsulate Ithaca's beauty.

This is a nice hike around the top of the gorge to the main viewing spot for the falls. We saw a falcon which was amazing.
