Hike the Thayer Preserve Loop at Lick Brook

Rate this Adventure Thayer Preserve Pull-off

Nice easy loop outside Ithaca to escape the summer heat, and enjoy the cascades and small gorge of Lick Brook.

On Townline road, park at the pulloff where you'll see arrows pointing to the "Thayer Loop Trail" and a kiosk describing the trail. This trail is a short trail that travels along the side of Lick Brook overlooking several small cascades and waterfalls. For a section it also passes by a small farm where wildlife can sometimes be seen.
