“Quick and breathtaking”

Buttermilk Falls State Park
Ranked #3 of 66 things to do in Ithaca
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details

It was quick and breathtaking and it quickly took my breath away as I hike up the first half of the falls! It doesn't take very long if you are in good health and is the perfect morning hike. The falls are absolutely beautiful and I even snuck in a few yoga poses!

The weather was perfect for a walk along the falls. The water was clear and we wished we'd taken a picnic.

Hiked the Gorge, Bear and Rim Trails. Gorge Trail had a lot of steps. We took that from the parking area, and therefore all uphill. Keeps you next to the water most of the time. Many nice waterfalls, and other water features. Definitely recommend going up via Gorge Trail. Bear and Rim Trails are nice woodsy hikes, but not many water features to see.

Went camping for the weekend at Buttermilk State Falls, Ithaca NY. I loved every minute of it! We were conveniently located across from the restrooms/showers but we were still able to hear some traffic noise from the main streets. Had a couple visitors from white tailed deers, frogs and a few insects hhaha. We decided to take a hike the next morning and it was absolutely beautiful! The freshwater and waterfalls was breath taking! Great incline hike and great cardio! Must go and see for yourselves!

A well groomed path leades to the falls or you can do like we did & climb down to walk along the creek bed for a decent distance. There are also two upper view you can drive to. A great way to end the day with a refreshing walk in the woods
