Partial section of the lower Cascadilla Gorge Trail reopened!
On October 18th, Cornell Plantations completed repairs to the lower section of the gorge trail between Linn Street and Stewart Avenue, and has reopened it to the public. The partially open trail is accessible from the renovated entrance at Treman Triangle in downtown Ithaca. The section of trail between Stewart Avenue and College Avenue remains closed and under construction in order to address safety hazards on and around the gorge trail identified in a 2008 trail assessment. Through funding provided by Cornell University, work continues to restore and open this section. A project completion date has not been set. During construction, visitors are reminded that portions of the trail are extremely dangerous, and are strongly urged to observe the "Posted Trail Closed" signs.
