In the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of Ithaca is surrounded
by natural gorges, expansive forests, accessible waterways, and of
course Cayuga Lake. Much of this nature is both protected and open
to public, so come and see what you can discover when you explore
One of the largest of the Finger Lakes, Cayuga Lake borders
right on the City of Ithaca. The lake can be enjoyed from the views
it offers from the hills surrounding it. If you want to get closer
you can take a stroll on the waterfront trail at Cass Park, and if
you want to dive right in there are several places to launch boats
and take a dip.
Gorges and Waterfalls
Both within the city and the surrounding area you can find
gorges and waterfalls. These natural waterways carved by ancient
glaciers are the defining feature of the region and the inspiration
for the city’s catch phrase “Ithaca is
State Parks and Forests
Many of the gorges have become protected public state parks and
are easily accessible from Ithaca. The state parks offer beauty and
recreation, many having campsites, maintained hiking trails,
public-swimming areas, and boat launches.
The natural landscape not only offers beauty and tranquility,
but also challenge and adventure for those who are seeking it.
Ithaca has been mentioned as a top city for both mountain biking
and trail running and also offers opportunities for hiking,
camping, kayaking and much more. So if you looking to balance your
life with an active lifestyle Ithaca is the city for you.
