This waterfall is absolutely worth the walk! We went when the river was low so we walked along the dry river banks and skipped rocks the whole way. The water fall at the end of the trail is breathtaking! Waterproof boots/shoes would be best but my friends did this in sneakers. We went in the afternoon/evening and there were hardly any people around. I highly recommend taking this hike if you are anywhere in the area

Me and the whole family took the trail at Taughannock Falls State Park and really enjoyed it. The waterfall is massive (I believe it is one of the highest of the area) and it really beautiful to see this scenery.

You need to wear appropriate shoes and clothes in case it gets muddy or wet!

You can get a guide map at the entrance that will let you know which way to go and make sure you pass from the bridge in order to take some wonderful photographs.

Oh my goodness, this place will hold a special place in my heart forever. I went camping here in May 2017. The main waterfall is a short walk from the campsites, and the rim trails are just as fantastic as the gorge trail, though--perfectly shady with great views. There are shady and sunny campsites, and all the campers were peaceful. Ithaca is a short drive (10 miles?) from the park, and there's so much to do and see there (the farmer's market, all the cool stores, museums, etc.). And the whole area is chock full of other waterfalls within an hour's drive; it really is a gem of an area!

The walk to the falls from the base is less than a mile, but it's worth the walk. The falls are beautiful and taller than Niagara Falls by 33 feet. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash.

My favorite waterfall! Worth the walk on the bottom trail beneath the falls! The river is usually a little low and you can walk along the stone river bank and skip rocks. Don't pass up the chance to see this!

Beautiful trail, we went at a relatively empty hour tourist wise, and the falls were amazing! Taughannock falls itself was huge! It was much larger than I had expected and the walk there was great! Highly recommend stopping here! And check out the body of water across the way, also beautiful! And downtown Ithaca!

Seriously beautiful. Out of all the falls in the Ithaca area, I felt this was the most impressive though it's also one of the more visited locations. For a locals favorite check out Ludlowville Falls on the Eastern side of the lake just 30 mins north of Itahca.
