Robert Treman State Park is one of the most spectacular gorges of the Finger Lakes Region. The main feature of the park is the 100+ foot Lucifer Falls which is pre, and proceeded by countless other beautiful cascades.

Starting in the parking area, choose which direction of the loop to take (all of which will take you to Lucifer Falls). You can choose to do a shorter, 1 - mile loop around the falls, or go further to the lower section of the park (approximately 3 miles).

There is also a campground conveniently located near the park entrance if you want to make this an overnighter.

Classic Upstate NY View

The waterfall at the end of this gorge is awesome, and one of my favorites in the area. Perfect for some long exposure photography, and calm enough to relax in the pool at the bottom

Awesome

Robert Treman falls are some of the best in Ithaca! Absolutely love the views of Lucifer Falls here! The hike is great with lots of waterfalls and photo ops! Great place to spend the day, or weekend camping!

Stunning in the Autumn

This is a beautiful gorge and absolutely stunning in the Autumn. Great hike with several waterfalls and cascades. Very photogenic!
