“Stunning”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Go early and bring an excellent camera. Do the lookout and then go to the park entrance near the lake and make the hike to the falls from below

“Beautiful walk!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Dogs are allowed on the trail to the falls. It is a nice wide and pretty easy walk. I think it is one mile to the falls. It is worth the walk. Very beautiful. Scary at the same time because of the gorge that is naturally very high, looking up. There is a $7.00 fee for parking but we got there early and no one was there to collect money.

“Nice park, pretty falls”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Makes for a nice picnic, plenty of tables, beautiful view of the lake. The falls was pretty and was about a 20 minute leisurely walk from the main road. Bring a bating suit if you want to get wet.

“Great View!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

The Taughannock Falls, about a 25 minute ride from the center of Ithaca, are definitely worth the trip. The falls are located right next to Cayuga Lake, and it is a quick 2 minute walk, mostly stairs, to the viewing area from the parking lot. They viewing area was perfectly built to allow for excellent photos and is definitely worth the few minutes spent here.
