Hiked the rim trail clockwise, south to north during summer. Involves many steps on a well maintained path. The southern section builds curiosity and provides a preview of what is to come. Ask for a map at the park entrance. This helped at the half way to select the old rail bridge. A great view from the bridge, on the... More

My husband, sister, brother-in-law, and I visited Taughannock Falls State Park on our last day in the Cayuga Lake area in August. It was only about 18 miles south from our beautiful B&B (Balcony View Bed & Breakfast) off of Route 89. The website tells you to park in the main parking lot, but we went into the park on... More

We really loved staying at this park. We drove by one time, walked to the falls, decided we would camp there someday, and finally did. We tent camped, and stayed in an electric site for our boat. The camp ground was far more quiet than most state campgrounds we have been to. The bathrooms were clean enough, showers weren't timed.... More

If you wish to look at the Falls (one falls), and not pay the Park fee - you can do so at the Overlook stop on the way there. However, parking and paying the state park-fee ($7) is well worth it. We took the Gorge trail - 3/4m ea way - very flat and easy. It was really beautiful and... More

Taughannock Falls are a must see. Continuing on a personal theme to visit all the great places only a couple of hours from Rochester N.Y., this was a favorite. I did the trip with my girlfriend, but I would recommend it for the entire family. The overlook is a must see. The hike up the stream to the falls is... More

View the Falls from up above and down below. The hike to the Falls is a 3/4 mile walk. It is on a beautifully landscaped path... Or you can walk the riverbed which is also nice! Taughannock is taller than Niagara Falls and the gorge area when you walk to the bottom will make you feel like you are anywhere... More

The hike was ok, but I was mesmerized seeing the falls for the first time. Its set awesomely within the gorge and is highest in NY state, Also, one can enjoy the slippery walk on the river to reach the falls which is again in a beautiful setting. There are facilities to kayak/canoe/paddle and there is an swim area at... More

Falls were beautiful. Loved the idea that you could walk in the water to the falls. Gorge trail was just the right length for us.
