Corning NY Mid-Week Getaway: Day 2 – Buttermilk Falls
We spent three nights the week of October 17th in Corning, NY. I wrote about our first day here.
On October 20th we visited a covered bridge in Newfield, NY and then drove to Ithaca, NY.
Our first stop in Ithaca was at Buttermilk Falls State Park, where we parked in the lower parking lot. We have the NY State Empire Pass, so we did not have to pay an entrance fee.
I walked down to the red barrier seen in the above photograph.
There is a gorge trail on the right side of the waterfall. We walked up a very short way on the trail.
In addition to still pictures I took a couple videos that I sliced together and uploaded to YouTube.
We walked back our car and left for nearby Cascadilla Gorge (the subject of my next blog post).

Very interesting waterfall! Nice job on the pictures! I wonder why the falls are named “Buttermilk Falls.” Now, I’m hungry for pancakes! Hope you have a great day!
I believe the name comes from how frothy the waterfall can look, when it is gushing after heavy rainfall.
What a beautiful waterfalll!
Pretty shots of the waterfalls. Hubby and I have visited this park and hiked the loop rim trail.
Looks like you had a great trip!
I love the photos and video you took of these Falls Linda. Glad you are enjoying yourselves. Happy November!
