At the visitor center you can get a gorgeous view of the falls. We walked the trails around the falls and stopped in here during that walk. Nice little center where you can buy your souvenirs.

One of the highest wall falls east of the Mississippi, this waterfall is just absolutely stunning. The overlook is easily found by driving up a winding road (clearly marked) and parking at the top. A very handsome staircase brings you down to a place directly...More

You can get a serious look at nature's splendor at this overlook. No hiking at all here. If you wish to hike, you can drive to another entrance.

No matter what, if you’re in this region you must visit Taughannock Falls. If you are able, walk the trails. But at least stop by the visitor center and overlook!

The View here is really nice. You can see the whole Taughannock Fall from the overlook. The visitor center restrooms are clean as well. It looked like there were some really nice trails for hiking around the center, but we didn't have time to use...More

Fascinating from a distance. Even better from close by. Do the gorge trail: it's easy and well worth the effort.
