Cascadilla Gorge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The ravine once began at William’s Mill at the center of the village of Ithaca where the first settlers built their cabins. Today it drops 400 feet from Cornell University campus to downtown Ithaca. Cascadilla Gorge’s nickname is “Giant’s Staircase,” appropriate due to the many stairs you’ll climb."
--Rich & Sue Freeman, 200 Waterfalls in Central & Western New York: A Finders' Guide (Footprint Press).
"One sublime falls follows another on this up-and-down walk through a striking gorge."
