Stopped by here with my boyfriend today to check out the swimming area. To be honest, the water did not seem really clean, and it was also very crowded with limited space to spread out a blanket and relax. We ended up putting our blanket on the pavement (not comfy). The diving board area where you can jump in was... More

We have been to this State Park in every season. I certainly enjoy coming here. It is so beautiful and I love walking in nature! Anyway, in the fall, we are surrounded by colorful leaves. In the winter, ice and icicles are quite numerous on the lower falls as well as on the rocks in their vicinity. The water hardly... More

Some of the views are already saved in other users' posts. Just to add what stood out to all of us was being able to swim outside in cool, clear water on a super hot day. Proximity to Ithaca is nice too. Just a fun time around other people having fun hiking, swimming and camping.

We were here before...and we are back here again at this great park. Check it out... park near at the Old Mill...get on the designated trail...and behold & experience the wondrous Lucifer Falls. You should see the gorgeous gorges of Ithaca..but this on is a must see.

We walked the gorge and rim trails. The gorge trail provided the best views but you have to do steep climbing in some spots. The path is well laid out and the gorge was beautiful, but not much water flowing due to lack of rain. Seniors get parking free during the week, otherwise it's $5.

The gorges and rim trails (2.5 miles each) are both strenuous to say the least. One fit member of our group had a hard time. The terrain is steep up and down with very uneven ground (many roots create the need for high-stepping). There are several waterfalls and spots to play in the water. There is a swimming area off...

What a beautiful spot! We hiked up the Rim Trail and down the Gorge Trail, visited the mill museum and had a dip in the cold, cold swimming area at the base of a falls. The ranger was helpful, the walk, spectacular. It's worth a visit.

Even though it was a tough 2 and 1/2 miles up - it was most definitely worth the hike- and the bonus feature was swimming in the falls

visited several falls in the Ithaca area recently. We enjoyed the Lucifer falls in this park much more than the near-by Buttermilk Falls which seems to get more attention. Suggest that you go enter the Treman Park from the upper entrance and hike down to these falls. Its a shorter and easier hike than the one at Buttermilk and the... More

The trails are well maintained, but the waterfalls and the gorges are so amazing to view. The pictures that I took were just amazing. Everyone on the trail had a camera or a phone and were taking pictures. They allow dogs on the trails so people had their pups. Just a beautiful state park and well worth the few dollars... More
