The Recreation Way is open one-half hour before sunrise and closes one-half hour after sunset, and it is closed for approximately four weeks each fall during the deer hunting season.
Opened in 1993, the South Hill Recreation Way follows the southern rim of the Six Mile Creek gorge from within the City of Ithaca southeasterly to rural Burns Road. The bike way follows the former railroad through a combination of residential neighborhoods, old field forests, meadows and mature woodland. The path crosses several deep ravines and offers a number of vistas across the Six Mile Creek valley. Part of the route passes through the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve and provides access to those sites and the Six Mile Creek gorge itself.
