Need to Know

Most of the parking nearby is metered. Should take less than an hour to go out and back. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Downtown is on one side, Cornell on the other.

Description

Starting at the bottom of the gorge, you climb many stairs through a series of multi-step waterfalls. It gets more beautiful the higher you climb. The stairs are well maintained and were not too slippery when we went in the rain.

Flora & Fauna

Might see a duck or two in the stream.
