We recently visited Ithaca Falls while visiting the area. Beautiful falls. It is very easy to access and would recommend seeing these falls.

Amazing Waterfall in Downtown Ithaca
Sep 2021
Ithaca Falls is a spectacular 150-foot waterfall right in downtown Ithaca. There is a small, free parking area on Lake Street, though it can be easy to miss. A short trail leads up to the base of the waterfall where you can get pretty close and really feel the power of the water. We saw a couple egrets and herons fishing in the water near the base of the falls. There are a few more waterfalls upstream on Cornell Campus, but nothing as amazing as this one. It's a really awesome place and a must-see if visiting Ithaca.

A Natural Wonder

Just steps off of the small road that runs in front of the falls you will find this truly magnificent fall. Catch it when it has been raining and you will witness the rushing water that spills from the gorge and take your breath away.

So pretty
Oct 2021
Ithaca Falls is one of the prettiest falls in this area. Parking for the falls is across the street from the entrance. You can stand on the bridge to view the falls, but leaves on the trees may block part of your view.

There is a path that takes you down the hill and along the stream to the base of the falls. The view is beautiful. I highly recommend.

Best Falls we visited in the area.

Would have rated a 5 but the parking & marking is not very good. We were not sure where to park but found gravel area next to the falls. If you follow the trail you can get up close to the bottom of the falls & feel the power of the water. It was BEAUTIFUL! Traffic around the area was a mess…thank God for GPS.

Magnificent.

Out of the way and yet so near to downtown Ithaca. A very brief walk from the parking lot and there it is - you can feel the cool of the falls before you even see it. Calming and nature at its best.

This is a really impressive waterfall that is so easy to access and free. View from a road, walk down a path to the base. Impressive in summer and when frozen too!

Impressive waterfall. Short walk from city street.

We parked our car at small "nobody's" free parking at the corner of Lake Street and Falls Street. Bring a chair to enjoy the view, or walk around Ithaca's most powerful and most impressive waterfall.

Great Place

I've been there several times at different times of the year. It was always great to see and heard the the falls. Beautiful in the winter and fall. Everyone if in Ithaca should take an hour to walk to the base of the falls.
