Fun to walk over the bridge and spend a few minutes looking over the side. There’s a waterfall upstream of the bridge on the creek.

I do not like walking near heights with my kids, but this bridge is safe, secure and has no way to get past the netting and fence which makes it very confortable to walk across with the family. Very interesting to see the gorge go...More

This was quite lovely with parking right nearby. When I got halfway across, I felt some tremors -- not unusual for a suspension bridge. It was my first time and I really enjoyed it.

This is cool just to walk over. You can feel it moving up and down. Nice view of waterfall and powerhouse. Only takes about a five minute walk to get there. Don't need a lot of time there.

We parked at the very small parking lot adjacent to the bridge to hike the gorge. Walking across this suspension bridge is freaky, you are really up there. This is the gateway to get into the hiking trails.

Nice bridge and well shielded from a fall with nets +. But it's hard to see falls below w/o taking that fall. Falls above are nice, and you can see where the Ithaca Falls plunge below begins. Makes an interesting walk but not a super...More

We saw multiple cool architectural sites at Cornell before checking out the falls and bridge. We did all of them and can say that you really need just see this attraction.

Read about the stories and history in advance. I hadn't been back to Cornell in a long time, and I somehow wish I had used this bridge more when I was a student there. My kids loved it. And definitely worth the view. I understand...More
