The Cascadilla Gorge Trail is a scenic trail, containing a number of waterfalls, that connects downtown Ithaca to the Cornell campus. The trail, maintained by Cornell Botanic Gardens, follows Cascadilla Creek through the gorge for a total of 1.32 miles.

Per the Cornell Botanic Gardens website.

“Cascadilla Gorge is truly a “gorges” display of rock, water and trees. Cascadilla Creek drops 400 feet from campus to downtown Ithaca, carving through bedrock—shale, siltstone and sandstone—exposing sedimentary rocks that were deposited 400 million years ago.”

“Cascadilla Gorge was originally preserved and donated to Cornell University by Robert H. Treman in 1909 to support public use, education, and enjoyment.”

“Please note: Cascadilla gorge from Lynn Street to College Avenue closes during the colder months from mid-November to mid-April.”

Help Keep Your Trails Open!We are a community of Waterfallers, and you make a difference.

Have a small bag on hand. It is possible, due to the pandemic, that the trail you are going to visit will contain litter.

What better way to help our fellow Waterfallers than limit the amount of litter seen by the next Waterfallers to hike on the path!?
