Peaceful, and recently updated

Ithaca falls are beautiful. Recently, the road from which they are often viewed was updated with better parking and observation area. Worth another visit

Ithaca Falls is just off of a main thoroughfare, visible from that road, and has plenty of convenient parking. Just a few minutes from the street, you could easily be at the base of the falls year round. With such easy access, it's certainly worth dropping by if you're visiting Ithaca.

Park ACROSS the street in the parking lot, do not park NEXT to the falls on the hill. Loooong story why not to, trust me. Wear comfortable shoes and you can either walk along the rocks or the path depending up how high the water level is. Our first visit had low water flow and you were literally able to... More

No matter the time of year the falls in Ithaca are beautiful. Take some time and walk and enjoy the beauty. If you don't like frozen waterfalls go in the spring.

Very beautiful fall. There's not much water, so the fall is not wide. But being narrow somehow makes it look taller. There are also nice trails around the lake. Ithaca gets dark very early in the winter, so visit before 3 pm.

This is a beautiful falls in Ithaca. When I visited the falls there wasn't lot of water flowing due to drought, but it was still very nice. There is a small parking lot at the junction of E Falls Street and Lake Street. If the lot is full, you can just park along E Fall Street. Just walk a short... More
