Creek, a tributary of Cayuga Lake, 5 miles north of Ithaca in
No hiking needed here, this waterfall is right
in our back yard. Drop us a note if you plan to
be in the area and we'll send you directions. Or
check out the map at Gulf Creek.
Ruth's Waterfall is a 14' cascade with a 4' cascade just upstream.
It was the site of a mill in the early 19th century and the foundation
is still visible. We're like parents with a new baby when it comes
to this waterfall. See our photos of "Dining
at the Waterfall" and "Ruth's
Waterfall at Night." For some waterfall fun, see "Waterfall
Food" and "Waterfall Sculpture."
And be sure to check out the story of The
Bridge at Ruth's Waterfall.
There are some much larger waterfalls on Gulf
Creek downstream from Ruth's Waterfall.
