The Lower Falls Trail at Robert H. Tremen State Park in Ithaca, New York is an easy 0.3-mile out-and-back trail that leads to a large 40-foot tall waterfall.

This short paved trail is open year-round, giving hikers access to the beautiful Lower Falls cascade. The trail itself is very flat and very short. As it approaches the waterfall and public swimming area, the trail loops (not shown in the GPS data), as it runs both alongside the gorge canyon walls and alongside Enfield Creek.

At the waterfall, take in the views and/or take a swim in Enfield Creek during warmer months.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The parking lot is large enough to fit dozens of cars.

Between the dates of April 20th to October 20th, the park charges a vehicle entry fee of $8, as of 2019. The fee is collected daily between 8:30AM and 6:00PM.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
