There are so many beautiful waterfalls in Ithaca – it was hard for me to decide which to see during my one-day visit. We spent some time at Ithaca Falls, and then I was again unsure of which waterfall to visit next, since we did not have much time left. We started heading home when we saw a beautiful waterfall right from the street. We found a spot to park the car and go investigate. We saw a few people entering the trailhead. Right at the beginning was an information board about the Cascadilla Gorge we had stumbled upon.
We walked alongside the babbling brook for a few short minutes to the waterfall we’d spotted from the street. As we approached, we noticed that the waterfall continued higher up. We followed the rocky path up and each time we turned a corner there was more beauty to see.
We were pressed for time and had to turn around before we finished the hike which ends by the Cornell University.
I was so glad that we ended up visiting Cascadilla Gorge “by mistake” since it would not have been on the top of my list to visit otherwise.
