Worth seeing if you are in this town. It was a hot spot for some local fishermen and just a nice waterfall to enjoy.

Ithaca Falls are easily accessible just about at the corner of Lincoln and Lake, right below the Cornell Campus where Fall Creek Gorge drops to lake level. It is not marked but easy to find. A short walk takes you right up close to the very powerful falls. So many magnificent falls around Ithaca, and these are among the very best. There is no "official" path so you do have to watch your step.

until you see/experience it with your OWN eyes....you will not believe it. my son went to Ithaca college yrs. ago and we fell completely in love with this lovely, gorgeous, god's-natural-beauty area!! we live in Ronkonkoma, long island, ny and only travel 5 hours to see this NATURAL, BREATHTAKING AREA.
filled with sooooooo many things to do. hike, bike, winetaste,shop, eat, boat, camp, etc,etc,etc.
I/we tell everyone we know about Ithaca....no kidding!!

There is no clear sign directing u to the falls after u parked ur car in a very small parking lot. However, u will be lead by the sound of the falls. Just make a 5 minutes hike & u will see the beautiful falls. People in Ithaca is so lucky to have a falls so close to (actually in) their city.

Ok. There are no signs that we could see to direct you to Ithaca Falls. There are more signs directing younto public washrooms.
Nevertheless...this is a great find. Plug it in your gps. Its close to the centre of town. The falls are wonderful...not as nice as atreman, but some great photo opportunities. Take a drive around the houses as well ( never mind the sign that says no thru way).
Worth the look..
