Buttermilk or Watkins Glen?

Looking for a light scenic hike and waterfalls. Any opinions as to which is better, Buttermilk, Watkins Glen State Pk or Fillmore Glen?

Of the three listed, Watkins Glen is the best although all any of the three are great choices. The easiest hike of the three is Filmore Glen and Watkins is probably the hardest because it is a bit longer than Buttermilk; although the beginning of Buttermilk is quite steep.

One advantage of Buttermilk is that it is close to two other lovely state parks in the Ithaca area (Taughannock Falls and Robert Treman); you only have to pay once to visit all three on the same day.
