100 plus waterfalls in Ithaca? I think I will try calling them tommorow and see if the guide is available anywhere locally. Any pointers on trails, or what falls are accessible along Falls or 6 Mile creeks? Would like to visit the other falls that we dont have anything on yet.

I actually just got this in the mail today. There's not much to it. Only about 20 pages featuring 19 falls. But its a very beautifully designed magazine quality booklet. Matt, there is a falls in it that I've never heard of. Denison Falls. It's on the grounds of the Cayuga Nature Center just a few miles south of Taughannock Falls on route 89. Its a "21 ft. cascading gem in a peaceful wooded gorge". I'll definitely try to visit this one the next time I'm in the Ithaca area.

Has anyone hiked above Cascadilla or Ithaca Falls to see the others? Is it possible?

I received mine in yesterday's mail as well, and I too had never heard of Denison Falls! The booklets will be a nice addition to the other area guides that I have in the cabins.
