Had some time to spare. This place is about a short hour North of Syracuse. Took the scenic way up, beautiful wooded areas. The falls is just another natural wonder. Has nice paths above but kind of risky going down a 600 foot steep incline....More

Great little day trip for the family. Trails are flat and well packed on the upper part of the system. The trail to the river below the falls are extreme. Switchbacks, steep grades, wet rocks, poison ivy, and narrow trails make hiking difficult. Wear good...More

Short, gentle walking path, navigable by wheelchair. Several scenic overlook areas for ideal viewing and photo ops. Tree covered path, so even on the hottest day (when we went it was 92 degrees out), you stay cool and comfortable. Several paths down to the riverbed...More

Beautiful scenery/the walking trails to view the falls was easy to walk on. Viewing spots were great for getting pictures of the falls. Other walking trails/to the gorge was a little more rugged to maneuver. Great place to get exercise and enjoy nature. Would definitely...More

Hello, The trail has a couple of wheel chair friendly overlooks of the falls. The trail is not paved, but is a fairly fine crushed stone that should not impact your trip
