What a wonderful bridge! It is steady and "save feeling" yet span a tremendous gorge. You have views on both sides, up and down the gorge.

Glad I stopped. Golden Gate Bridge on a small scale. Great architectual history. Nice place to spend an hour or so. Fantastic outdoor artwork in same area. Alton nice walk below bridge close to river. Check it out! Then hit the good trucks.

I enjoyed finding the Suspension Bridge. It didn't wiggle as much as other suspension bridges. However, it was complete covered by a metal grit. I guess to avoid suicide, but I am not 100 % certain about that. We had some great views from this bridge. We could see the river clearly as well as the surrounding trees all over.... More

Park nearby on Fall Creek Road and walk to the entrance of the bridge. Walk across and take in the breath-taking view of the gorge below and the Cornell electric powerhouse run by Fall Creek waters below. If you continue across the bridge and up the steep steps up the gorge wall (I'd say a fairly moderate walk), you can... More

This was stop #2 of our falls tour. The bridge swayed slightly in the middle as we had about 40 people on it. Great views of the falls and the lake.

You need to pass by when you are visiting Ihaca. Very sturdy and very well built. You can enjoy a very nice view.

The obstructed view of the falls is nice but not spectacular. It's literally just a bridge to get from one side of the river to the other. It's a nice cut through for the Cornell students.

Nice view of the Fall Creek Gorge, but the real views are along the Fall Creek Gorge trail. There are a series of falls that ends at Ithaca Falls. It is worth looking for the trail and walking down the steep stairs.

I guess I had great expectations upon hearing of the suspension bridge. It was OK and views from the bridge were beautiful, but not dramatic.

This was our first trip to the Cornell University campus. We enjoyed walking around the campus and the views of the gorge from the suspension bridge. We were glad we stopped here.
