We visit this park every fall while we're in Ithaca, N.Y. always look forward to this visit, but especially if it is a pretty fall with the leaves turning colors.

Nice hiking trails ... great for family and friends. Rangers are low key but helpful and most folks are respectful of the environment.

Awesome place to swim and hike. Go early in the day. Gets cool and shady late in the day. Swimming in the falls is lots of fun. Great diving board too!

Even if you come in winter there is lots to see and the waterfalls are amazing. Most routes are closed due to potentially icy conditions but some areas are still open and it’s scenic and serene. Great place to see if in the Finger Lakes...More

We love to hike and venture out into different parks. The trails were well marked and they had a nice variety of levels. This was one of 10 parks we visited in a week and these were by far our favorite trails to hike. The...More

The multiple falls in this park are amazing. The stairs and paths around Lucifer Falls are stunning. Hats off to the CCC workers who constructed them 80+ years ago, allowing us such nice views - and to Robert Treman's family for donating the land. We...More

No shuttle. Some people go in two cars so one couple park at top & then transport everyone to bottom for hike up. It is a strenuous hike up.

I forgot to add how long the whole trail would take. For me, it was around 3-4 hours in total. If you're faster, it'd be closer to around 3, if you're slower, closer to 4. Add time if you'll be taking pictures, stopping for... More

Yes. We are just home from visiting several parks in the Finger Lakes with our dog. She had to be on a leash, of course. Remember to take water for your dog if you are hiking up to the falls as it can be hot going for man... More

4 day itinerary-suggestions welcome (8 Replies)
My family will be visiting the Finger Lakes in mid July. Here's our vague itinerary: I'd love some ideas on where/how to spend our time. We'll be coming in from Stratford, ON on a Sunday & figure on staying somewhere like Canandaigua or Seneca Falls. We should be able to arrive by early afternoon, so ideas for a place that might have some late afternoon hikes, scenery options would be welcome. Then we plan to drop down along Cayuga Lake, visit the falls at Taughannock State Park, stop in...More

If you want a hike, I would look into staying in Geneva and driving up to Chimney Bluffs State Park (on Lake Ontario) on the day your arrive (about 45 minutes one way). There is a nice hike with awesome views there. Canandaigua and Seneca Falls are pleasant towns but there is no real hiking there. You could visit Sonnenburg Gardens in Canandaigua or the Womens Rights National Historic Park in Seneca Falls. There are also nearby places to swim at either of the lakes. I would spend a night in...More

Parks & falls - time commitment (6 Replies)
We're hoping to visit Taughannock Falls, Buttermilk Falls & Robert Treman State Park during our day & half in Ithaca this summer, but we probably can't give them all equal time. Is there one that deserves or requires more time or conversely is there one that can be seen/done more quickly (shorter hike to the falls or viewing from the parking area)? We'd also like to do a boat trip. I see 2 that would work for our itinerary: Ithaca Boat Tours or Captain Bill's cruises at Watkins Glen....More

Most time = Robert Treman - the gorge hike is the best of any of the hikes at any of these parks. You can drive to the overlook at Taughannock; the trail to the falls is pleasant but if time is an issue I would skip it in lieu of Treman's. Buttermilk could also be viewed from the pull in to the park but I think the gorge trail here is worth doing and would try to fit it in.

Things to do around Ithaca other than wineries... (3 Replies)
Hi, We are currently staying in the Ithaca area and are wondering what things there are to do other than visit the wineries. So far, we have hiked Watkins Glen and Robert Treman State Park, walked along the Commons in town and driven through the University campus. We have another day and a half in this area. Are there any museums that are worth seeing (apart from the museum of the earth?) or other hiking areas? Buttermilk Falls and Taughannock Falls (sp?) are on our list for tomorrow, but...More
