Short walk to this one
Jul 2021
The falls are pretty dramatic and you can get pretty close. It's a short walk after parking your car in the neighborhood. No fee for that.

Don't miss this impressive beauty.
Jul 2021
We are two senior citizens with ankle and knee problems that make us a little hesitant to go hiking over rough terrain. Here, the reviews said, was something not too hard to get to, and they were right. I'd recommend starting in the middle of the bridge over Falll River where an overlook gives a nice long view of the waterfall, then hike the modest distant down the gravel path into the gorge for a close-up of the falls, the roar of rhe waterm and the cool kiss of the mist.

The local botanical society should be proud to have worked with good partners to create a well-kept, informative attraction.

Definitely worth a visit, but there are better waterfalls in NYS
Jul 2021 • Solo
Ithaca Falls (I’m referring to the town and large waterfall proper) is very quirky and pretty, but I enjoyed Robert H. Treman Park (also further out in Ithaca) better. This place, full of nature, Cornell University, little shops and restaurants, is definitely worth a visit, but I think the main falls is overrated. The main trail going to the base of the falls wasn’t even open when I went. There is supposed to be a mural project, which I plan to visit later. Definitely a college town as well!

This is a must see while in Ithaca. Go early for parking as this place is quite popular with students and locals.

Easy Parking, Beautiful

Beautiful waterfall, right in the city. Easy parking, did not have to pay to park. Short trail, as some of it was closed, but it was worth the hike

Great place to see a BIG waterfall and people using the river for fishing! The path to the waterfall was very easy and flat. The fall foliage was on point in October. Don't miss it!

Relax at Ithaca Falls
Oct 2020
I visited a handful of Ithaca waterfalls last week and Ithaca waterfall was my favorite. I loved how big the Ithaca falls were. Make sure to bring a lunch or a snack as you would want to just sit and relax while watching these incredible falls. I had no problem finding free parking around the area. Afterwards I left my car and walked around Ithaca as finding a parking spot can be hard to find. Just be warned Ithaca can be very hilly. Everyone seemed to be keeping there 6 feet distance. In Ithaca the foliage was amazing. Come to Ithaca falls you will have a fantastic time!

Beautiful falls, right by the side of the road. We parked and walked a short way down a trail and enjoyed the scenery.

We found out about this location at the Taughannock Falls VC and decided to check it out as it was close by. It is easy to find, an easy walk, and a nice view at the end. No admission costs, however no swimming and lead in the soil take away some of the fun from this location.
