Hike Treman State Park

New York Treman Traiihead

Added by Brian Maley

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.

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!

Working with Cornell University and the Finger Lakes Land Trust to photo-document the Unique Natural Areas of Tompkins County to benefit conservation. I believe in getting people excited to go outside and explore on a local scale.

Hike the North Point Loop

New York / Butter Hill Trailhead

There is three different trailheads to access the North Point Loop.  I chose the trailhead that would give me the longest hike.  That would be the Butter Hill parking area on Route 9W north.

This loop is a great option to avoid crowds on the west side of the Washburn trail.  Start at the same trailhead for the Washburn Trail.
