Ithaca Falls

Total distance: 0.14 miles

Difficulty level(s): moderate

Beautiful year-round, 100' verticle fall by 150' wide with cliffs rising another 100'. Visible from Lake St. bridge or a couple minute walk to the base of the falls. Red Tailed Hawks nest on cliffs above, Turkey Vultures and many other birds take advantage of air currents, a popular fishing hole as well. Swimming is illegal and currents near the falls are deadly. While the park entrance is fairly flat and provides a wheelchair accessible path to overlook the creek, the path heading toward the falls can be somewhat rough and uneven. A short, but somewhat steep trail enters the woods and loose stone and earth paths provide access to Fall Creek and up close to Ithaca Falls.
