Explore the Trail

Visitors to Ithaca's Waterfront will find playgrounds, picnicking, boating, summer theater, birding, and gardens along the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, a great multi-use path for walking, biking, running, skating, and strolling. There are also quiet places to relax and take in the views. Look for ducks, dragon boats, and sailors on the water; baseball, soccer, or hockey in the popular parks; and two venerable academic institutions on the surrounding hills. 

 

Cass Park

A paved two-mile loop through Cass Park gives you wide open views of the Cayuga Lake Inlet, the hills above Ithaca, and all kinds of local activity. You can track your progress by the mileage markers every quarter mile. Other attractions in Cass Park include an ice rink, a swimming pool, multiple athletic fields, tennis courts, a playground, and the waterfront itself.

 

 

Cass Park to the Farmers Market

The most recent paved connector between Cass Park to the Farmers Market provides easy access to Puddledockers kayak rental and Inlet Island attractions. The Crew Crow Overlook is a peacful place to walk or sit and enjoy the stunning view of the Cayuga Inlet or the Ithaca College and Cornell University boathouses. This area of the waterfront is one that many have never been able to enjoy before. 

 

Farmers Market to Stewart Park

A paved 1.7-mile connector between the Ithaca/Tompkins County Convention & Visitors Bureau to the Ithaca Farmers Market via Stewart Park provides a great place to bike, walk, run, or push a stroller. This section of the trail travels gives you views of Cayuga Lake, passes through part of the Renwick Woodland, and provides nonmotorized waterfront access to the Farmers Market. 

 

 

"I just love the trail! Year round it is such a pleasure to get out and run, walk, or stroll along the waterfront and enjoy the beautiful place we live."
