My bf and I visited the falls on Memorial Day. Nice day drive from Syracuse. Great views and nice access to the water. Wear appropriate foot wear. Definitely could've hiked more without sandals on.

The area of the falls was colder than we anticipated due to the wind chill, but still a terrific experience and view! Very well maintained by the state of New York, the falls are visible after a short easy walk. A little further down the...More

Yes, I took my rottweiler and he was fine. The wall down to the falls is a little difficult. I'd caution with smaller and older dogs though

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
