The Treman Triangle Park is a small park at the bottom of Cascadilla Creek, just off of Linn Street. It is the access point to 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.
The Cascadilla Gorge Trail is partially closed for repairs. You can access a trail through the 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.

Through funding provided by Cornell University, work continues to restore and open this section. A project completion date has not been set. During construction, visitors are reminded that portions of the trail are extremely dangerous, and are strongly urged to observe the "Posted Trail Closed" signs.

Cascadilla Gorge was originally preserved and donated to Cornell University by Robert H. Treman in 1909 to support public use, education, and enjoyment. The Cascadilla Gorge Trail system, initially constructed during the Civilian Conservation Corp. era, ascends 400 feet in elevation between Lynn Street and Hoy Road, and currently totals 7,800 feet in length. Cornell Plantations manages Cascadilla Gorge, and is committed to protecting the natural area, providing ongoing educational use, and supporting safe public recreation and enjoyment of the gorge.
