Fall Creek Gorge: Upper and Lower Triphammer, Rocky, Foaming, and Forest Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This waterfall hike—Ithaca’s crowning glory—stretches the length of Cornell University’s campus. This New York State gem takes you on a mini-tour of the Cornell University campus
and introduces you to five waterfalls.

The first two, Upper and Lower Triphammer Falls, were harnessed as far back as 1832 by Ezra Cornell—yes, the Cornell for which the university is named—to provide power and water to mills along Fall Creek and encourage settlement in this area. Above the falls, Beebe Lake—created by Cornell’s dam—fills the Fall Creek floodplain and is just a few feet deep."
