Beautiful, my 5 year old did it. I would suggest starting early because it gets really busy.

The falls are beautiful. One of the busier trails. I would recommend going during the week or early morning. Relatively short hike but the gorge trail is a bit steep and challenging at times so still a good workout!

A classic NY state park trail. Beautiful, scenic hiking. Moderate difficulty with lots of stairs. Love to hike this and then go to Ithaca Beer Company to relax
