This is the time when I finally have to discover the beauty of the area that I live in. Hiking in the woods has always brought me a sense of inner peace. It is time I reclaim that by finding special places in nature where I can feel the sun on my face, and smell the earth lingering in the air. So here is my link to my Springpad collection of places that I would like to go. It's time....
I hope to add to this collection regularly as the weather get's better. Please click here for my in and around Ithaca Hikes-----> Janice Brodowsky : Springpad Collection of Hikes in and Around Ithaca NY
To see the rest of the gorge, proceed south on Lake Street and up Gun Hill. Half way up the hill on the left you will see an old smoke stack on the former site of the Ithaca Gun Company, which made world-famous shotguns for over a century and was, at one time, powered by Fall Creek.
Continue up the hill, and turn left onto University Avenue and then left onto Stewart Avenue at the “T” in the road. You will pass over the Stewart Avenue Bridge. Immediately after the bridge, take a right onto Fall Creek Drive.
