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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
