Buttermilk Creek drops 600 feet as it plunges through a gorge down the eastern slope of the Cayuga Valley at the southernmost edge of the City of Ithaca. This is one of five trails featured in the park that wander through a remarkable variety of landscapes. The Larch Meadow Trail takes you through a wetland that has survived from glacial times. Explore the plants and animals of this shrub swamp with a trail leaflet available at the park office.
