Robert Treman State Park, Ithaca

4.8
Robert Treman State Park, a picturesque region of rocky gorges, creeks and waterfalls, boasts high-quality walking trails, camping grounds, a swimming beach and picnic grounds. Hike the gorge trail to see 12 different waterfalls, including the impressive Lucifer Falls. The multitiered falls cascades 35 m (115 ft). Visit the Enfield Falls Mill--which is on the National Register of Historic Places--and Miller's House, a former gristmill that ground buckwheat, wheat and coarser grains. It now serves as a small museum that documents the milling process. Head to the lower falls for the lifeguard-monitored swimming beach. Bring a picnic to enjoy at picnic tables under shady trees.

  • I love this park and have been going here for 42 years. I think it is one of the most beautiful parks in the state. There is an upper section, a lower section and a 3 mile gorge that you can hike between the two with over 25 waterfalls along the way. It looks like something out of Lord of the Rings in some places. You can sometimes see deer along the stream. It has a campground with cabins in the lower section with a great swimming hole. You'll love it!
  • This is a gem of a park. It features a beautiful gorge trail and several waterfalls, most notably Lucifer Falls. In the summer you can hike through the gorge; in winter part if the rim trail is open, and you can get a partial view of Lucifer Falls. I hiked there recently during a snow fall, and it was absolutely gorgeous!
  • Like Buttermilk Falls, I recommend this location for a hike as well. There's quite a few of waterfalls you can see here and it's about a 3 mile hike with plenty of room in the park for friends and families alike to enjoy the outdoors. I've done this hike here a few times along with some BBQing. Really recommend it. As always, bring some extra water and proper boots / sneakers (in good weather) to hike. Also, if you don't want to hike, you can go and chill by the pool area.
  • Absolutely loved this place. Me and my wife visited this park in The month of January when it was freaking cold and we loved the snow covered park. Our dog enjoyed the short hike to the fall too. I have visited this park bost in summer and winter but i have to tell you that i loves the park in winter more than in summer!!
  • One of the most beautiful places to hike. There are dedicated life guards for those who want to swim near the waterfall. Water could be very cold, so it's best to go on a hot summer day.
