Chittenango Falls State Park reviews
This is another amazing falls in the state of New York. The area is kept up well and the hike to the bridge is not that bad. The view from the bridge is wow!! Another one done on our bucket list more »
This was a very nice hike with beautiful views of the falls. The hike was not too difficult, but the stairs can be slippery after a lot of rain/snow so be prepared for that. The trails were beautiful.... more »
A spectacular waterfall not too far from Syracuse. The parking lot can fill up pretty quickly so it's best to arrive earlier in the day. The hike down to the bridge is short, but can be steep and wet in places so be sure to wear proper footwear. Definitely a great place to bring the family for a nice outing or for a picnic (shelter rentals available). Hours from sunrise to sunset.
We had a relaxing walk around the perimeter. Fences don't let you get too close which is a good thing because the drop offs are very high. Great views and the hike is relatively easy. Would recommend to anyone passing through. Great place to go to get out and take in some fresh air.
