Assuming we stay in downtown Ithaca, I'm thinking we'll spend a morning at Robert Treman Park. I'm piecing this together mostly from websites, and reviews on this forum, but I'd like to park at the lower end, hike up to what looks like an overlook area for Lucifer falls, and then hike back down for a swim and picnic. How intense and how long is this loop? Would it be feasible with a light stroller (folded and carried up steps), or it is more appropriate for a carrier/baby backpack? Are there better or worse times of day to visit?
Same questions for Taughannock Falls and the Ithaca Falls natural area.
Outside of waterfalls and gorges, we'll mostly be wandering through the town and campus. We're not really looking for indoor exhibits (e.g. museums, static exhibits), but rather for the sights, sounds and tastes that make Ithaca interesting.
Any other advice on what to do in Ithaca is also appreciated!
