While visiting Ithaca, this was a nice spot to see. Very relaxing and easy to get to with parking right next to it. The trail is for all ages with easy access. I recommend checking it out.

This gorge and falls is really neat considering where it is located in the city. I recommend a stop here anytime to just enjoy nature.

Easy to get to by car or on foot and easy to get pictures with little effort. You can get pretty close to the falls and view them from either the road or at water level. Free and easy!

Anyone traveling through the Ithaca area owes it to themselves to take a short walk and experience Ithaca Falls. It's right downtown with plenty of parking and a short stroll will bring you to the base of this incredible falls. Don't miss it.
