Waterfalls in April

Hi!

We will be traveling to the fingerlakes region next week and were really looking forward to hiking the gorge at watkins glen... However we just found out its closed till mid may! We still would like to do some hiking in the area and want to see some waterfalls. We will be the ithaca, watkins glen, geneva area. so here are my questions..

1. If we hike at watkins glen can you still see the waterfalls from trails other then the gorge trail?

2. Is there any other spot that has pretty waterfalls in the hike that is open now?

Thanks for any help!!

Hike the lower trail into/up to Taughannock Falls -- 15 min north of Ithaca, parking on the western shore of Cayuga -- amazing (easy) mile or so into one of the beautiful shale canyons on the East coast, and also the HIGHEST waterfall east of the Mississippi!

While in the Ithaca area, you will be able to see (but not hike) the falls at Buttermilk Falls SP, and I think you can get into Robert Treman SP a little bit, but not very far.

You can hike the rim trail at Robert Treman; it can be reached from the upper entrance. You will have a stupendous view of Lucifer Falls in the gorge at an obvious overlook about a half-mile along.
