  • We walked the flat trail through the woods, along a stream, ending at the scenic waterfall. Very peaceful.

  • The gorge trail hike was very nice. A pleasant easy walk with nice views of the surrounding cliffs and concluding with Taughannock Falls: New York State's tallest waterfall. The park also has access to Cayuga Lake. Along the lake shore there are picnic spots, a boat launch site, and places to fish. The views of the lake are also very nice. The South Rim trial above the gorge was also a nice walk with some good views of the gorge. However, the park should put up more signs that have trail maps on these trails. It would make it much more easy to navigate around these trails. Definitely, a NY State Park that is a nice place to visit!
  • Absolutely breathtaking every time I come here. Finally hiked the gorge and got to see the falls up close with some friends during a camping trip. Very great hike, no crazy elevation changes. Just a nice, flat relaxing walk through the woods and gorge. 10/10 recommend doing both the actual hike and the overview after; to admire the scenery & accomplishment of the hike!
