Very close to Ithaca. The Gorge Trail is 3/4 of a mile (x 2) that is wide, level, and along the river with very nice scenery. This trail leads to the main water fall. You could do this trail with a stroller. The Gorge Trail is well shaded. For other trails you can take are a 3 mile loop on... More

Taughannock Falls was a last minute visit for my friend's and I when we visited in July 2014. It is an absolutely beautiful spot. The park has a beautiful stretch of trails that were easily walked. The time of year was perfect, and the falls were BREATHTAKING! I can't wait to go back to experience it all over again.

Gorgeous! Even in winter when the water still flows and creates ice on the rocks, we enjoyed our snow-covered hike to see the falls. Definitely worth a stop!

A must to view from the gorge and the look out. The power of Nature, WOW!!! From the top lookout you are immersed with this view and the hawks just encircling the rim of the upper gorge, flying with ease with the falls as a backdrop was just spectacular. The gorge with it's towering walls and tree line walks are... More

The falls here are grand and stunning, falling straight down from a cliff. We did not have much time to explore, yet we were able to get a beautiful view from an overlook just off the parking lot. We wish we had had more time to walk to the base of the falls themselves. Well worth a short drive off... More

We spent the weekend at the Taughanock State Park campground which was very nice. As usual, state park camping is a bit different from the campgrounds like KOA and YOGI and such more mellow crew and also more minimalists environment. Campground was clean and running water between each site which was shared. Our site had 30 amp service. I would... More

We had taken Route#89 to get a good view from top of this gigantic fall. This fall is taller than Niagara Falls but it was not dense ( Maybe because of summers and little rain ). After this we went inside the State Park where parking was $7 (and you can reuse the parking pass in other State Parks for... More

What a place to enjoy the wonders of natural rocks, cliffs, and waterfalls. My husband used to take our boys there to walk the trails while I studied nursing textbooks and studied for tests....this spot was there favorite for helping Mommy have quiet time. Dad's take your kids and give mom a little soul time even if she might not... More
