Description

With a drop of 150ft and width of 175ft, Ithaca Falls is the region's most powerful and most impressive. By 1817, a half-dozen mills were operating here, their ruins are still visible on the south bank. The plunge pool is famous among anglers for lake-run trout and salmon.

Short Walk: The Ithaca Falls Trail is a 1/10 mile to view the falls. They can also be seen from the Stewart Ave. bridge above.
