Visited in October and thoroughly enjoyed the fall colours and the rock formations of the Gorge. Well worth it for hikers.

“nice falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

The falls are nice,but it was a climb up alot of stairs,so if you have problems with that,could be an issue.

“Beautiful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Most picturesque waterfall in Ithaca. Enjoyed swimming here in the summer & emjoying a good book on the banks. Great for the whole family with little walking or rough terrain to get to.

“Nice Scenic Spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Nice picture spot but not worth $7 to park to take a picture. I suppose if you did the whole walk in the park, it would be a more worthwhile visit.

Wear good climbing shoes and be prepared for a step uphill climb since the stairs are beginning to sink and heave in various directions. Not for those who have agility challenges. A summer visit might be nicer because you can swim at the bottom of the falls.

“nice day for for a hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We had no plans on a recent Sunday afternoon and decided take a drive up to Buttermilk Falls an hour away. Be warned if you are not comfortable walking up or down steps, this isn't for you! The hike up was mostly steps, coming down was much better,more of a hiking trail. Beautiful scenery and great outdoor activity.
