Overall Experience: smile

Rim Trail Right out of the campground is the Rim/Gorge Trail. This hilly out & back hike goes along the rim of Enfield Glen gorge and offers a view of the 115 ft Lucifer Falls. Because of recent damage from heavy rains, the Gorge Trail section of the hike was closed. We still enjoyed the hike just the same.

Taughannock Falls State Park

On Thursday, we decided to do a little auto touring and drove the short drive from Ithaca to Taughannock Falls State Park. While at Taughannock Falls, we hiked the Gorge Trail along Taughannock Creek to the base of the falls and then drove to the top of the falls. All very scenic!

Local Flavor Area Businesses We Enjoyed & Recommend
Ithaca Beer Company Very enjoyable and conveniently located near our state park campground.
