Impressive Waterfalls
Mar 2021
Pictures do not do a justice to this spectacular sight! The falls are really large, and if you stand close enough, you will feel the mist. The falls are easily accessible, since you don't need to hike much at all to reach them. There is usually plenty of parking in the empty lot across the street.

Very impressive!

You don't have to walk out to the falls if you don't want to as they can be seen by the bridge. It's a short walk so there's no reason not to. However, if you don't, you're missing a beautiful and powerful waterfall! Interesting caution signs related to the cliffs! Be sure to read them! :0

Bigger in person!
Sep 2021
We visited late morning on a Sunday. We were able to park in the gravel lot right across the street. It's not marked as parking for the falls, but it's the only lot that is literally right across the street. These falls may not look so big in pictures, but they are very impressive in person. The bridge view of the falls is currently partially obscured due to trees, but you can still see most of it. However, what's even better is to walk the very short, easy trail on the right to stand practically at the foot of these thundering falls. You'll feel the mist and spray. We spent about 30 minutes here and it was well worth it.

Worth a visit

The falls were incredible though it had been raining for days. You can view them from the street safely. There was so much water that hiking down wasn’t really safe. It’s easy to get to, right behind Ithaca High School. Be sure to go when there’s lots of rainfall.

Easy Drop by waterfalls!
Aug 2021 • Family
With a few small parking areas you can view the fallsfrom the bridge. But better yet walk a very short distance down to the waters edge for an unobstructed view and enjoy! The kids loved skipping rocks and we loved the quiet peace of this waterfall crashing down on n the rocks

Parking Lot Blocked Off
Jul 2021
Parking lot was blocked off when we arrived and there was no easy path to the waterfalls. Not sure if it was a one-time thing or permanent. Disappointing to drive to the falls and then not be able to access them.

Short Walk to Beautiful Falls
Jul 2021 • Family
Ithaca Falls are beautiful. They are powerful but still approachable. It’s easy to just sit and soak them in. Plus, they’re just a short walk from a parking area. Don’t miss Ithaca Falls.

Great place to visit, but better waterfalls in NYS
Jul 2021 • Solo
Ithaca Falls (I’m referring to the town and large waterfall proper) is very quirky and pretty, but I enjoyed Robert H. Treman Park (also further out in Ithaca) better. This place, full of nature, Cornell University, little shops and restaurants, is definitely worth a visit, but I think the main falls is overrated. The main trail going to the base of the falls wasn’t even open when I went. There is supposed to be a mural project, which I plan to visit later. Definitely a college town as well!

Been there, done that.

Been there, seen it, done. Easy to reach waterfall and nice, that is it.
For more spectacular gorges, check out the local state parks.
