The trail into the scenic Taughannock Falls gorge is not the only spectacular trail within the park. Unlike many rim trails at other state parks, the rim trail here is full of scenic vistas into the canyon below, views of the towering 215-foot Taughannock Falls and the 80-foot Upper Falls, and a panoramic perspective of Cayuga Lake as well. I recommend that you hike the rim in the clockwise direction, as it puts the least scenic section at the beginning and allows for even better views of the lake while you descend to the trailhead.
