Best viewing from the blue-blazed section of the Finger Lakes Trail. 1.2mi round trip. There is a steep, strenuous 500 foot climb. Open year round, though use extreme caution during winter. No fee for use Dogs are allowed Swimming is prohibited

Excellent undisturbed hike - no man made barriers. Numerous waterfalls (two large falls) with a lot of character. there is quite an elevation change, mostly the bottom third of the trail.

Amazing! My new favorite spot. It is VERY steep though, I'm 23 and athletic and I would say it's more like a cliff than steep hill haha.

I really enjoy this trail for a quick getaway to the woods. Its a great strenuous walk that I've taken several times & I never get bored with it. Great place for peace & quiet as I rarely run into anyone else there.

Well marked trails with beautiful views! Contains a serious climb back out! The views of the falls are well worth the hike.
