We live minutes from the falls. It has beautiful scenery. The road to the falls has small falls too, be sure to check those out on the way in. There's a small hiking trail on the right and it's worth the walk, you can also...More

We thought the falls were pretty. We did not spend a lot of time there. It is very convenient to Trumansburg. There is good history in the area.

This waterfall site was interesting and pretty, but it seemed somehow less impressive than Watkin's Glen. It was an easier trail hike than Watkin's Glen, and there are a lot more trees at Taughannock Falls. Overall, it was still pretty and interesting, I just wasn't...More

Visited Taughannock Falls while in Ithaca on a beautiful, sunny day. The best way is to park next to Cayuga Lake and walk up to the Falls and back and later go up in your car to see the viewing point at the top of...More

No problems at all! A tiny bit muddy in some areas but the roads are all clear. Perfect time to go because of the extra water!
