Cornell Botanic Gardens 550-acre Monkey Run Natural Area is a very popular hiking destination and is part of a long natural corridor protecting Fall Creek on its route to Cayuga Lake. Trails here, which connect with the Cayuga Trail, follow the creek from the rims of forested banks and at creek level through rich floodplain forest, seeps, and wet meadows. Breathtaking views are afforded from atop 100-foot bluffs, which are continually eroded by a meandering Fall Creek below.
