Just about a seven-10 minute car drive from Downtown Ithaca is this lovely falls. Very popular for swimming in the summertime.

Very easy to walk down to these falls yet they are so large and breathtaking you can’t believe they are right off the road! Highly recommend and good for any age. Footing is a little difficult close to the falls if you have any mobility issues but generally it is easy to navigate.

Hate to believe this is right in town. Easy to get to as well. Parking just across the street. Very short walk to falls. It is all rocks once you come down but nothing crazy. Just watch your footing. Falls were just beautiful !!

This is a very cool place to visit in Ithaca. There are many fall here but this is one has very easy access and wonderful view. How I don't like is people continue to swim here when the sign says "no swimming".

There is a parking lot near the waterfall. We missed it and parked on the street. Short walk to the base of the waterfall.
Very scenic waterfall with minimal walking.

There are a number of water falls located in the Ithaca, NY area. It is an easy drive to various falls and most are a short walk from the parking areas. It was a pleasant afternoon enjoying the beauty of nature. Most are located on state parks and there is a $4 entrance fee if you go before 6 pm.

We viewed many different falls during our visit and these were the most approachable and gorgeous. The easy trail led directly to the base of the falls, allowing for unobstructed viewing.
