A hiking gem just a few minutes from Trumansburg, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this hike! We spent 3 hours hiking the gorge trail and then north and sound ridge line trails. The gorge trail is a very mild 1.5 mile hike (round trip)...More

A beautiful walk on the trail to the beautiful falls. Very easy for all ages. The springs are clear and sometimes you can see them Fly fishing!

The hike to the falls is really nice. The falls aren't that huge right now, but the lake is gorgeous and the kids loved swimming. The bathrooms were kind of gross, but that was our only complaint. We rented a pavilion for a family reunion...More

Global warming is killing this park.The main attraction looks like an empty rock without water.Still impressive.The bottom of the river looks like a highway.And the small amount of water makes the fish struggle to survive.Take the top route and do not pay for the park.

My husband, teenage son and dog enjoyed a couple hours walking around the gorge. Apparently, the flat areas that you walk on are comprised of sandstone, shale and limestone and used to be the bed of an ancient sea. It's a huge area and more...More

What an amazing example of geological formation and the power of water. Although it has been a dry year the falls was still worth visiting. Great and easy hike.

No problems at all! A tiny bit muddy in some areas but the roads are all clear. Perfect time to go because of the extra water!
