  • What a beautiful roadside attraction! The parking lot is close by and should it be full, the High School parking is close by just across the bridge. Obviously, parking is only allowed when school is closed. A short 2 or 3 minute stroll down the path brings you close up to the falls and it does have some trip hazards, historical markers and some No Trespassing signs. A must see at the end of Cayuga Lake in Ithaca 👍👍👍😁
  • A gorgeous and large waterfall that can mesmerize the soul. It has a wide viewing area and by going up the right side you c an even get quite close to the falls itself to enjoy the natural splendor a tad more. Please do heed the warning signs about lead poisoning on the rocks and water however, and make sure you take precautions to cleanse yourself properly after visiting.
