Born and raised in the hills of Homer, NY, Lime Hollow was once one of the best kept secrets for runners in the Cortland/Ithaca and Homer areas. It has now been cleaned up and expanded to be a solid trail running mecca if you don't want to make the trip to Ithaca or Syracuse for Green Lakes State Park.

For Trail runners looking to get some mid week or weekend runs in, Lime Hollow offers are moderate challenge especially around the ponds closer to McLean Road. I frequently when home from CA will do workouts on the rolling hills around the ponds.

Great place that I am happy to see more runners and walkers are starting to explore, especially in the areas off of the common trails.

Great hike a few good views. There were some challenging rock scrambling. We spent 4 hours hiking on a perfect warm day. We parked one car at Reeves and started at the Sebago Boat Launch where we parked 2nd car. Would highly recommend this hike!

Nice quick hike, best view is from the overlook to the west of the summit. Stay to the right when you reach the summit loop split and it will take you directly to the overlook. Uphill the whole way but short. Definitely wear micro spikes or snowshoes in winter as the trail gets extremely icy. A section of the trail becomes a short waterfall but you can easily go around it. My 10 year old loved it.

Great trail, especially for winter hiking and in the snow when the ticks are dormant. Quiet and good prep with its distance and rolling hills for bigger trails and summer hiking.

This was a lovely hike!

We hiked it on a bizarrely warm day in February with a small chihuahua.

There were difficult moments peppered into what was overall a moderate difficulty level. Pretty icy in the winter and for our warm day there was a ton of mud that got you slipping and sliding. You must be careful on this hike but with some good boots you’re ok. Hang onto the trees! Go topside to avoid the ice patches. Some ice patches are hidden under lots of mud so be careful.!

But again, we were with a chihuahua so it couldn’t be so hard, right?

Waterfall lookout at the top is beautiful. I wish there were picnic tables or something but we found a goood rock to snack upon.

So many stairs. But pretty and doable.

The middle section (after the initial rock scramble ) turns into a gorgeous sloping up and down adventure.

Trailhead from the road says something like “preservation” so be careful not to miss it. Parking lot gets super crowded but people are in and out all day so if you just wait a flash you’ll get a spot. A small bit of walking along the highway to get to the trail.

Crowded at the trailhead but winds up being pretty private because of all the space. A small moment of oh-my-god-cliffs. Just hang on. It’s short-lived.

Would do again any day. So would Puppito.❤️

It was a beautiful day on this historic trail. It was so warm that I actually got sunburned.

Great short hike for all levels - very good views at the top... Just do it!

A less frequently used trail and for good reason. The elevation gain up the hill from the waterfall is substantial and the grade very steep. It is a workout even for those in good condition, but well rewarded. Once at the top it becomes a trail of gentle ups and downs always close to the brook, and almost entirely in the woods. If you go to the Blue trail it takes you back on the other side of water before rejoining the main trail. Plan on an hour and a half and when descending I suggest taking the white trail to the right. It brings you to waterfall but meanders through the woods and across many streams and a lovely ridge view.

Nice hike in the middle of February 75degrees this afternoon!!!!

first time I've ever tried to walk the green diamond trail with the dog today. had to turn back after 2 miles. could not make the first stream Crossing as it was too high and running rapidly. the trail itself was all ice and mud because of the warm temperatures. scenery was very nice from what I could see of it.should be spectacular in the summertime when I will attempt to hike it again. the walk back seemed slightly uphill all the way to the parking lot. lol. great exercise!

I was just there today & would recommend this park to any visitors who enjoy hiking. The falls & gorge are worth every step. However, the red trails get confusing because they are actually 3 separate trails that can lead you away from where you think you're going, unless you use a compass carefully & take a picture of the map near the parking lot. Beware that from the footbridge, the White Trail is straight ahead, despite the low red flags along the same route. To follow the Rim Trail, your first step after the footbridge needs to be an immediate sharp left. I suggest installing simple rustic signs indicating the beginning of specific trails at each end, as well as an arrow indicating the direction to follow. Also, I suggest using a few other colors so that each trail has its own individual identity.

Great little, short hike around an old cranberry bog. Very pleasant and easy. Lovely views of the water.

Walked it in the winter, when crowds were light. Can only imagine how crowded it gets in good weather. Nice way to get down to the Meatpacking District from the West Side. Tons of construction along the first part of the walk.

Trail is almost entirely melted after today’s weather ! It was a beautiful hike .. you don’t need spikes anymore unless the temperatures drop again. Will be going again soon

Loved the trail. The mellow carriage road towards the end was just what we needed. The falls and surrounding ice was beautiful. Recommend using spikes of some sort as it was icy in some parts. Just a bit of reassurance on the slippery parts.

Really nice easy peaceful trail!!

Beautiful hike to an abandoned hotel and a fire tower worth climbing. It’s definitely uphill but we did it with a chihuahua and he was fine!

Hiked on Feb 18/18. Only one other on trail who i caught up with at summit. Trail not particularily well marked though the other hiker broke trail which made finding my way easy. Little snow but lots of ice ,some very challenging, a few ice covered scrambles that required thought on how to climb
False summit has nice views, actual summit is in the woods. There is supposed to be a marker at the summit but could not be found. Likey some jerk took it for a souvenir. Decent was like the assent with a few challenging spots.
My first winter solo.Enjoy
