All trails open as of May 10, 2015. Always a great hike; counted the numbers of stairs on the main set: be prepare to climb 222 steps! All worth it, though.

Very accessible for all levels of hikers. Beautifully managed trails with lots to look at- great for spotting wildlife so close to the city. Definitely bring bug spray!

Great trail- goes from the bottom of Cornell's campus down to a neighborhood near downtown. Wonderful for a scenic commute during the spring, summer and fall!

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

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