I love the Cayuga Waterfront. It's long and so lovely. I recommend that you go at sunset, it's spectacular at that time.

Located along the inlet of Cayuga Lake. Nice walking trail. Close to the water and nature. Trail is several miles long if you walk the full length. It goes from the East side of the lake to the West side.

Ithaca has lots of lovely trails but this one is the most accessible, easiest and still beautiful. For those who want to chat their exercise, it offers loops of various lengths, including a free outdoor array of exercise machines (near the Rte 96 bridge). It...More
