The lower section of Cascadilla Gorge is truly a "gorges" display of rock, water and trees. Cascadilla Creek drops 400 feet from campus to downtown Ithaca, carving through bedrock - shales, siltstone and sandstone - exposing sedimentary rocks that were deposited 400 million years ago. Look for ripple marks on the rock surface, which once was the muddy floor of an ancient ocean. Here also is a tremendous variety of forest and creek habitats packed into a small area.
You can access a trail through the gorge from the "Treman Triangle" off of Linn Street in downtown Ithaca.
Note: The Cascadilla Gorge Trail is partially closed for repairs. You can access a trail throughthe gorge from the "Treman Triangle (off of linn Street in downtown Ithaca) which is open to the Stewart Avenue Bridge. The remaining trail will be closed until repairs are complete.
