Buttermilk Falls State Park, Tompkins County Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A creamy slide provides an impressive entrance for a waterside hiking adventure. Buttermilk Falls may hold the title as the most popular park in the Cayuga Lake area, with its immediately accessible waterfall, easily reached scenic overlooks, and plentiful picnic areas and ball fields.
The falls that gives the park its name appears instantly as you pull into the Lower Park Entrance. A frothy, creamy white confection in high water seasons, Buttermilk Falls diminishes to skeins of silvery ribbon in summer, nearly vanishing altogether by August."
