During the winter, you can not go into the gorge. That being said, the view from the top was amazing! We will be back in warmer weather to check it out.

This is a NYS Park, so there are more rules than at some other hiking trails. There is a unique endangered snail that lives in the rocks in the spray from the Falls. The Falls are most impressive in spring and whenever there has been...More

This hike is beautiful down to the falls, however there are PDF maps that you can print out, to take other hikes. Some one on Trip Advisor said there are no other hikes, but there are. You can take a steep hike down to the...More

Chittenango Falls was gorgeous and definitely worth the drive from Syracuse. However, I was VERY disappointed at the condition of the stairs down into the walk. The individual I was with had extreme difficulty walking and it could have been very dangerous for them. We...More
