Cascadilla Gorge Trail Reopens
Bookmark and Share

A cherished Collegetown-to-Downtown commuting route was finally restored on September 15, when the Cascadilla Gorge Trail reopened with a ceremonial hike led by Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick ’09 and Cornell Plantations director Christopher Dunn. The trail had been at least partially closed since 2008—undergoing years of work (partly funded by FEMA) to repair damage from ice, a hurricane, and other depredations of Ithaca weather.

 

From the website of Cornell Plantations, which maintains the gorge:

"Improvements include a realigned and elevated trail, the removal of invasive trees and shrubs, repair of retaining walls, a custom-built gate, repair and construction of safety infrastructure such as railings, stair repairs, removal of debris, slope stability, and new storm water systems to carry water under trail sections.

Cascadilla Gorge was originally preserved and donated to Cornell University by Robert H. Treman in 1909 to support public use, education, and enjoyment. The Cascadilla Gorge Trail system, initially constructed during the Civilian Conservation Corp. era, ascends 400 feet in elevation between Lynn Street and Hoy Road, and currently totals 7,800 feet in length."
