The Cayuga Trails Club proposed the Cayuga Trail in 1964 as a special project to offer visitors and Ithacans an introduction to the many beautiful and interesting areas that are within easy walking distance of Ithaca. The Cayuga Trail follows Fall Creek for 8-1/2 miles past hemlock- lined gorges, waterfalls, and through Cornell Plantations' botanical garden, arboretum and natural areas.

On Sunday, September 28, the Cayuga Trails Club will offer two guided hikes to celebrate the trail's 50th anniversary. An 8-1/2-mile hike begins at 9:00 a.m. and a 4-1/2-mile hike begins at 12:15.
