East Ithaca Recreation Way Description

The East Ithaca Recreation Way on East Hill is primarily built upon the rail bed of the old Ithaca and Cortland Railroad, which later became part of the Lehigh Valley Railroad. The trail skirts the campus of Cornell University and traverses a natural area along Cascadilla Creek between Pine Tree Road and Game Farm Road. Then it cuts south from Pine Tree toward Maple Avenue, following it west for a short distance before heading south behind neighborhood back yards to Honness Lane.

You'll find rest areas with benches along the trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Limited parking is available off Game Farm Road just south of the trail.

Well kept, asphalt, nice brook off to one side at the on the Game Farm Road entrance. We had our dog with us, so only hiked about half - until trail went onto road with cars.

I had the opportunity to ride with team giant members recently and we had a great ride and only wished for better signs once!thanks to Kathy Bolton for a great day!
