“eat your heart out, ithaca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

nothing in nearby Ithaca matches the awe-inspiring wonder of this natural cut, which has been enhanced at bit for safety, but not paved over like, for example, the islands near Niagara falls... combine this with a trip to corning and you've made a truly unusual short week's vacation... do take care, though, to avoid race weekends... unless, of course, you're a fanatic, in which case the gorge will little appeal to you

“Fantastic campground and gorge with many trails.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Very large campground and a gorge that's the best in the Finger lakes. Many programs run by the local rangers for education and fun. Don't miss this one.

“Beautiful Gorge walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Many steps from bottom to top and some of the neatest waterfalls in the Finger lakes. You even walk behind one called Bridal veil. It's a wonderful outdoor destination in a geat little village.
