We visited the waterfall on a beautiful day. Cool, lush, crisp & very green. The lower gorge is less than a mile to the falls. Flat and an easy stroll. I immediately felt the energy and peace surround me. Cayuga lake is across the highway, a beautiful way to spend a whole day exploring. The waterfalls history is amazing. I... More

This was our second time visiting and hiking up the Falls. You need to wear clothes/shoes for getting wet if you walk up the Falls. There is also a trail, but it is usually muddy. The rocks in the Falls can be slippery, so you have to be careful. Most areas are only ankle deep, but some areas are knee... More

Stopped for a walk and to see falls, and started out on a trail with no map or idea of length, etc. Just followed the trail, which is mostly level and very pleasant, but seemed to go on endlessly. Finally found someone who knew the trail and figured out how to get back to our car. Didn't regret the hike,... More

I first saw Taughannock Falls when I was a freshman at Cornell University in the year dot. Years after I graduated, my husband and I moved to the Ithaca NY area, so we're able to visit the Falls whenever we like. Typically, though, we bring visiting friends and family to view this beautiful site. The cliffs and gorges are spectacular,... More

This is a great place to enjoy a mild hike on land, or you can take the more strenuous route and walk through the water. I recommend that if one plans on walking through the water that you bring water shoes. Without proper footwear walking through the water can be somewhat dangerous, as the rocks are very slippery. At the... More

Absolutely worth the mile walk to see this beautiful waterfall! Only a 15 minute drive from Ithaca, where we were staying. I very much enjoyed seeing this as did my fiance.

after visiting the Niagara Falls, the Taughannock falls are a like bit of a downhill experience, but if you extrapolate the spectacular sight that is the Niagara falls, this pretty waterfall is worth the visit specially the mild trekking to reach the bottom. the area to rest and picnic by the Cayuga lake is worth the visit as well

Nice little trek through well managed trails. Bring water on those hot days. Very pretty falls. The trail is accessible with a wheelchair or motorized wheelchair.

The mist from the falls helped cool us down on a hot summer day, and we waded through the river below the falls, which is very scenic in its own right.
