Hard to get good pictures, not really tourist friendly. Hard to find parking close by. There are info boards at the falls.

We had limited time in Ithaca to visit all the waterfalls so we picked Ithaca Falls. We're glad we did. The falls are large and the flow was strong. Easy parking and a short walk to the falls. You can get really close. Wonderful!

We didn't really know the area was known for its falls but we sure found out soon/ Get a map from the chamber or hotel and make sure you take advantage of this.
