We stopped at the park during our short Labor Day visit to Ithaca and really liked the idea of swimming in the waterfall. There is a designated area for jumping and another area for swimming. Beware that the water is ice cold!!! There are life guards on duty and the area is popular mostly with families. The nice thing is... More

Home of Lucifer Falls - a beautiful falls in a beautiful canyon. The falls can be seen from the trail off the upper parking lot. The trail is roughly a 1 mile round trip. At the trial head you can go left or up. Left is a much easier trail. Up is rougher and includes 200 stairs. If you plan... More

The Rim Trail was a great hike! The beginning is a little intense but so worth it when you see that view!! Highly recommend!

The hike to the falls is short but I did not think the falls were nice as others. The rim trail hike was nice though, if you walk from top to bottom it involves steep hills and can be a little tiring. If you have time it is worth the trip but if you are on a crunch I would... More

This park is so pretty and offers great hiking with plenty of trails. Lucifer Falls is a highlight and I really wish I'd had more time and better light for photographing. It's a deep gorge and the falls are quite tall, making them very imposing. You can drive up close to the fall and just hike down and back up... More

Hiked Gorge Trail from upper falls down to lower falls and back again. There are moments of pure magic along this path! Lucifer's is the highlight but there are surprises and pleasures all along the way. We arrived late and did not have the benefit of full sun. Having the place to our selves at dusk was a consolation. I... More

We did not have much time as we rolled into the state park in late afternoon. We decided to hike the Red Pine Trail to the Lucifer Falls. This path was tough! Not very long, about 1mile total on very steep hills but the scenery was all worth it!!

Loved the hikes on the trails to see the waterfalls. The upper trail is a bit tough, may be hard for some who are not good on uneven ground. The views from above are beautiful !

I came here to hike the Gorge trail and the Rim trail. Some of the Upper Gorge was undergoing restoration and was unaccessible. Enjoyed my time there. Swimming area looked nice and would be fun to go there with kids.
