Ithaca has numerous waterfalls in the city or nearby. The Ithaca Falls is located in a residential area along Fall Creek which goes through the campus of Cornell U. to it's outlet in Cayuga Lake. You have to find parking along Lake Street near the bridge over Fall Creek. There is small park at the bridge at which you can see the falls and a walking trail (very short hike, less than .25 mile) right to the falls. As seen in the picture, these and very nice waterfalls. As the falls are in the a glen you are somewhat isolated from the surrounding residential neighborhood.

Absolutely amazing. We took our kids pictures here. In the summer we would go swim bc the water was low. Check out Flat Rock too near the Cornell Plantations. Great place to swim in the summer.

It amazes me these falls are literally on the outskirts of town. It's a very short walk to some very impressive falls. Our dog met another dog at the base of the falls and had a blast running around. Both fell into the water at one point and had to be pulled out since it was a little deep and they couldn't reach the bottom. It was a very impressive view.

This may have been the easiest walk to see a falls in the Ithaca Area that we found. You could see this falls from roadway but make sure that you park your car in one of the nearby parking areas and make the short walk to get a closer view. It was an easy walk and very short. You will not be sorry! You could hear this falls well before you got a full view of it and once you did see it...it was just a beautiful sight. This was actually my favorite waterfall in the area!
