Description

This loop offers scenic views of cliffs and Fall Creek. There are some gentle slopes but it is an easy trail overall. Part of the Monkey Run Natural Area, the Monkey Run Trail follows the long natural corridor protecting Fall Creek on its route to Cayuga Lake. The loop is closed by following the Cayuga Trail back to the start. Wonderful views are afforded from atop 100-foot bluffs, which are continually eroded by Fall Creek below.
