  • Enjoyed the Cascadilla Glen Trail hike. We had done all the other area hikes - Watkins Glen, Buttermilk Falls, Taughannock Falls, Robert Treman, etc. And they are my favorites, but this hike comes clo...  more »
  • This path is a nice ballad to link the Center to the campus. Do not be afraid of the altitude!

  • Great place! Great for pictures aswell. Fun to walk on. Great view. Very high. I would not encourage older people to walk on. It would be hard for them.  more »

  • Amazing gorge trail. Spectacular views of the gorge and waterfalls. The trail isn't overly difficult but there are a lot of stairs, some that are slightly uneven due to natural erosion so if you have limited mobility you may have trouble. The trail goes down 400 feet in altitude if you're going down from the Collegetown entrance so making it back up is a bit of a trek, but luckily there is an exit leading out into downtown Ithaca at the bottom if you do not want to make the trip back up (but if you do, it's totally worth it!).
  • this trial is aggressive, we made it half way up, but it is worth the effort. I believe there were 6 to 8 waterfalls.
  • So lovely! Paved walkways with lots of steps. Some tree was flowering- the scent was beautifully sweet. May 31.
  • Beautiful, yet steep trail that is often closed. Lots of waterfalls. Check for ticks.
  • Beautiful falls and cliffs. A great walk all the way down and back.
