Hiking (or not) in Ithaca, N.Y.

I visited Ithaca, N.Y. this week.


Originally, I’m from a little town on the Pennsylvania/New York-state border called Susquehanna. When people ask me where I’m from, I usually tell them Binghamton, N.Y., because that’s pretty darn close.

I took a few days off recently to visit with family and relax, and ended up making the short trek to Ithaca for, I thought, hiking and gorgeous views of waterfalls. While I didn’t do much hiking, Ithaca is “gorges,” as they say.

According to Visit Ithaca, the city is home to 150 waterfalls. That’s a lot. I was happy to see just three of them on Monday, Endfield Falls, Buttermilk Falls and Ithaca Falls.

Many of the trails were closed — I’m not sure if that was a seasonal thing or a result of the insane amount of rain the area saw in the past few weeks. I’ll definitely be returning to do the trails in the future…
