Colleagues highly suggested Buttermilk Falls State Park as my next destination after last week's hike at Watkins Glen. So with some sunshine in the forecast and my camera in-hand, I set out to the south side of Ithaca to see what all the fuss was about!
Much like the week before- I was not disappointed after my arrival and subsequent adventuring on the gorge trail. The initial falls are visible from the main entrance and it's a towering mess of rock and falling water, but as you traverse up the hill along the trail and wind farther and farther back, it just gets better and better.
The smaller swimming "pools" between several sets of waterfalls were popular spots for many people to cool off and take a breather from the countless sets of stairs along the trail. I will definitely be headed back soon with no camera and a pair of swim trunks!
Here's a few photos from my afternoon hike at Buttermilk Falls State Park today. Cheers!
