  • Amazing waterfall right in town. There is a small parking area and you don't have to walk very far at all to get to this impressive waterfall. The trail takes you right to the base of the falls. Go early if you want to take photos though as it does get busy as the day goes on.
  • Loved it, but it's a place that u can only hang for 10 mins tops and take pictures. So, I hope it's not your whole day's plan
  • Didnt know where to park my car because there was no obvious parking so just parked in a partially completed pathway. Walked over to the waterfall and it was awesome! The powerful rush of water during this winter was so refreshing! Kept my distance though but it would have been awesome to walk nearer!
  • It was rainy and overcast during my visit but the grounds are beautiful. Ithaca Falls was so impressive.
  • Beautiful falls and walking area. Watch out for needles though, Ithaca's heroin problem often plays out in its parks.
