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

Hike here. The falls are gorgeous and the trails are well maintained. Just don't camp. It's right smack dab in the city of Ithaca so at night all you here are the wonderful sounds of highways
