Nice short hike through beautiful scenery. Close to college.

Easy beautiful hike. Fantastic waterfall

I had forgotten how beautiful this hike was. If you are looking for waterfalls this will definitely fit the bill. There are a lot of steps so there is a little bit of a workout. This was the third and final hike while I was down in Ithaca this past weekend, none of them disappointed. The way out on this one, going around the lake, and taking pictures on the damn on the way back down were definitely highlights. I can't wait to go camping down in Ithaca again and explore more of the area.

Nice hike with nice views. Decently trafficked on the lower sections, so not the best place for a private peaceful hike.

Gorge hike has numerous falls, steep stair climb at beginning of hike. Well worth the effort. $8 state park entrance fee per car
