Located along the inlet of Cayuga Lake. Nice walking trail. Close to the water and nature. Trail is several miles long if you walk the full length. It goes from the East side of the lake to the West side.

Although portions of the trail pass thru industrial Parrish area, the portion of trail near the Ithaca Children's Garden and along the inlet toward Cass Park marina is a scenic favorite. The trail is especially nice in the winter months when the days are short...More
