Hidden Gem: Taughannock Falls
Taughannock Falls....One of the most beautiful waterfalls in upstate NY. Little known fact that this "little" gem is actually the TALLEST waterfall east of the rocky mountains! This actually surprised me since I thought Niagara was actually bigger. Ithaca is full of gorges and waterfall, but this one.....this one REALLY stands out. This surprisingly is open all year round too! The upper trails of course are closed for the season, but you can walk the lower trail to the falls all year!!
