My sister and I hiked this trails some years back, and it was just beautiful. Lots of stairs, but worth it.

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

First time to upstate New York and it didn't disappoint. It's amazing how lush the trail is. We hiked up Bear Trail to Treman Lake and down Rim Trail. Easy, beautiful hike.

I was on a girls' trip to NYC then to Syracuse. After being in NYC for a few days we needed some fresh air! I love being outside but we had one or two girls who were not the outdoor pros but even they really enjoyed this hike. We started first on the Rim trail down to the falls then went back up the Gorge Trail. The Gorge trail has a better view of the falls but both trails together make a loop. The falls were very pretty and seemed to go on and on! Very pretty moderate hike, but with some stairs on the Gorge trail.
