Nice waterfalls and greenery

It is decent trek with nice ending to it. That waterfalls is pretty good and the shale formations are interesting. If you are in the area, a must see!

Campsites are spaced pretty well, with enough space between for privacy. Pets are allowed so be prepared to hear dogs barking. In our case, the dogs were very well behaved and slept through the night (probably because it rained overnight). Restroom and shower facilities were adequate. State park personnel were extremely nice. We had Space 36 with a pretty view... More

This was the second year in a row we've visited this park, and this was even better then the first. We walked both the top and bottom trails to the large falls, and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend walking the path in from the parking lot below to the base of the falls. HINT - once again, if... More

The falls view in the Falls is spectacular. It's a good place to stop while you go to Watkins Glenn.

Short walk to spectacular view. There is another higher viewing area right off the main road with no walk involved. No fee when we went , but there is a booth, so there probably is a fee later in the year.

We were on Route 89 or possibly 96 heading south into Ithaca and pulled over into a parking area off the main road where there is a new outbuilding under construction in the park. You can walk down several flights of wooded stairs to a lookout point which gives you a full view of the 215 foot waterfall. There are... More

A short level walk on a groomed trail will lead to this very impressive waterfall. There is a large grassy park on the other side of the road bordering the lake. A very pretty spot for a picnic lunch. $7.00 parking fee required.

It's still early in the finger Lakes, and some gorges are closed to visitors. However this one was open, it was an easy walk, and very impressive.
