The Cayuga Waterfront Trail is an 8 mile greenway on the edge of Lake Cayuga in Ithaca, New York. As this trail traverses the southern shore of this lake, as well as the Cayuga Inlet, it connects a number of notable attractions.
The trail starts with a loop around the Allan H. Treman State Marine Park, with views of the Cayuga Inlet lighthouse and breakwaters. The trail then turns south past the Ithaca Dog Park, Hangar Theatre, Cass Park. The trail also passes through the Ithaca Children's Garden, an exciting interactive garden with numerous attractions including a garden kitchen, bees, hens, bird habitat garden, rice paddy, wildflower meadow, and even a troll house. This impressive garden is also where the Cayuga Waterfront Trail meets the Black Diamond Trail.
Shortly after the Children's Garden, the trail crosses the Cayuga Inlet and begins to head north. This eastern section of the trail passes by the College Cree Boathouses, The Ithaca Farmer's Market (open every Sat & Sun), the Newman Municipal Golf Course, before ending in Stewart Park. Not only does Stewart Park offer spectacular views of Lake Cayuga, but also boasts a bike rental service.
There is parking along this trail at the Allen H. Treman Marine Park, Cass Park, the Ithaca Farmer's Market and Stewart Park. See TrailLink Map for more detailed information.
