    While visiting Cornell Cascadilla Gorge Trail provided nice retreat and relaxing walk and hike. The little falls are very cute and very picturesque. There are little spots to take rest along the way. ...  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.
