Stopped here to see the falls and one of the highlights of the visit was the walk thru the gorge to the falls themselves. When the river is low enough, you can walk along the river bed, which is solid rock. Great for photography to...More

There wasn't much water flowing during our visit, but it was still a nice waterfall and hike. There is a wide, mostly flat and even path back to the waterfall so it was an easy walk. You could also walk down along the actual water...More

Water level was low and not much running over the falls but it still was a very enjoyable experience. Nice park along Lake Cayuga . Easy three quarter mile walk to the falls in a pretty forest.

While driving around Cayuga Lake, we noticed a sing for Taughannock Falls State Park on the west side of the lake and stopped in. There is a nice overlook spot facing the waterfall and gorge. Worth a stop.

Ithaca has many water falls but, this was by far, the most beautiful for me. It has two viewing options that offer two vantage points. From the main viewing deck or from down below. This one looks like a heart with a single drop of...More

They are supposed to get heavy rains today, so I would assume the water flow would continue to be impressive into the week

There is only one restaurant in the park and it is pretty pricey. However, Ithaca is only 20 minutes away and has tons of restaurants. I would recommend the Ithaca Beer Company and Gorgers Sub shop for some really good... More
