Visited the park one morning to take the walk to the falls. It was certainly worth the trip very easy walking path and lots to see. The park itself looks like a nice place to hang out.

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.

Have been here multiple times. This last time went at sunset and the view from the lookout was amazing. Definitely worth a stop. You can park at the lookout for 10 minutes if you just want a quick view. There are also a few hikes...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!
