We went in middle of June and it was perfect. Not too hot or crowded. The walk to the falls is very doable even with older people. Great place for picnic lunch and great pics! Beautiful area.

Great hiking trails. The falls are impressive, especially in winter when it's ice-covered. You can walk all the way from the falls to the lake.

We visited Taughannock Falls State Park because we were in the area. While the Falls were spectacular, everything was closed because of cold and ice. 🅿️🚾

It was a pleasure to hike the trails of this state park and see the gorgeous waterfall. Very impressive! I recommend. Even with small kids or people with reduced mobility there are a few view points accessible by car and with very few walking.
