What a beautiful trail that should not be missed
Jun 2021
Don't miss this hidden gem. We missed it the last time we were in Ithaca. This is a wonderful hike, easy and so beautiful. Was a little disappointed that part of trail was closed. The waterfalls are spectacular!

Disappointed that trail was not open
May 2021
We were so disappointed that the gorge trail was not open while we were in Ithaca. Apparently the spring rains were damaging to parts of the gorge and they had to do some safety repairs and check to some areas. The one thing I can say is that there is limited parking (only three spaces on the Triangle Park side) in the area of the gorge. We were able to park a short distance away in on street parking but always check before you leave your vehicle. There are many permit only parking sections in Ithaca.

Beautiful waterfall, right in the city
Jun 2021
Beautiful trail, it was a bit short as it was closed off. A bit difficult to park here, we had to pay a fee to park too. Short hike, but worth it

Cascade of falls which reveal themselves as you climb
May 2021
Cascade of falls which reveal themselves as you climb the stairs beside them. Careful when the ground is wet. You can see the lower falls without too much effort, though. Note that a portion of the trail is closed as of May 2021, so you can climb only so far and then have to go back down the same way.

Great hike into a gorge. Wear hiking boots it's pretty steep and some points. We went in the summer time and it was absolutely beautiful!

Chasing waterfalls
Oct 2020
Another great walk up staircases and meandering along a river to observe a few waterfalls before getting to bigger waterfalls. This trail is right near Cornell University's campus and is in a wonderful neighborhood to walk around in as well. Be careful when it is wet!

Short, beautiful trail
Oct 2020
This is absolutely beautiful. It's also super easy. We found parking easily on a Sunday late morning and did the whole loop (including east of College Ave) and explored Cornell's campus too. The portion of the trail east of College Ave doesn't have any falls, so if that's what you came for, you could skip that portion. You absolutely have to do this if you're in the Ithaca area.

Beautiful, easy hike through a gorge.
Oct 2020 • Couples
This short hike is great! Beautiful water falls throughout and lots of photo ops. Nice rock formations and, in the fall, pretty color change.

Beautiful gem right in the city
Aug 2020
I was very pleasantly surprised at how beautiful Ithaca is, mainly due to this trail and other trails throughout the city. It was not that crowded and the landscaping around the falls and trail enhanced the beauty of the trail. Highly recommended.
