The Taughannock Falls Gorge Trail near Ithaca New York is an amazing flat 2 mile out-and-back hike to Taughannock Falls.

The waterfall is 215 feet tall. Well worth the visit, but this is a very popular trail. Dogs are allowed here, but there aren't many (if any) trails that lead off from the main trail.

Just before you reach the falls, you'll hike through a massive gorge with rock walls reaching hundreds of feet into the sky. It's an amazing short day hike if you're near Ithaca New York.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
