We came across these falls while walking our dog after dinner one night. We continue to come back when we can. The falls are beautiful and it is a peaceful setting!

While visiting Ithaca, this was a nice spot to see. Very relaxing and easy to get to with parking right next to it. The trail is for all ages with easy access. I recommend checking it out.

This gorge and falls is really neat considering where it is located in the city. I recommend a stop here anytime to just enjoy nature.

Easy to get to by car or on foot and easy to get pictures with little effort. You can get pretty close to the falls and view them from either the road or at water level. Free and easy!

The Ithaca Falls are located in town near Cornell University. There is a small parking lot off Lake Street and a very short hike to the falls. The falls are about 100 feet high and we were entertained by a few ducks at the edge...More
