    Sweet place to run, do the loop trail, then end by running up to the falls themselves, very rewarding! Also, skip the parking fee and park at the "Falls Overlook" (see link) Read more

    The swimming in Cayuga Lake is great. Also, make sure to check out the upper gorge trail -- many people overlook this area.

    Walk up the trail to the falls. And drive up to the overlook above the falls. Beware falling rock.

    A couple of nice hiking trails. The gorge trail isn't terribly long (2.5 miles or so) but it's a workout.

    Don't miss the Upper Falls (west of the main falls). Great views from the old train crossing

    When you walk the gorge (you are walking the gorge, right?) bring some water shoes and walk in the water all of the way up to the falls!

    Dogs on a leash are welcome on on the trails! Park at the overlook, then walk down the ridge to the Falls trail - great way to spend a couple hours with the dogs!

    Try camping there. If there is a drought, you can make it rain by popping a tent! True!
