Trail shared by Karl W

A short, flat path to the bottom of Ithaca Falls in the middle of Ithaca.

Karl W

Features River/Creek · Waterfall

Description

Parking is available in a small lot just south of the trail or on the streets nearby (be mindful of parking hours etc). The trail starts right from the E Falls Street crosswalk over Lake Street. It is also accessible from the parking area.

The trail is flat, and follows the river to a small viewpoint near the base of the falls. Despite how short the trail is and the fact it is in the middle of the city, no visit to the Ithaca region would be complete without it - after all "Ithaca is Gorges" for a reason!
