More Finger Lakes New York

Hello and Happy Monday!


During our trip to the Finger Lakes area we visited a lot of New York State Parks, we took many hikes to see various waterfalls.  We rode past vineyards and hundreds of wineries, some were in a beautiful area with views of the lakes. 


On May 22nd, after doing the hike at the Buttermilk Falls State Park we drove to the nearby  Robert H Treman SP to see more waterfalls. We saw the Mill, Enfield Falls and the Lower Falls which was an easy walk.  Then we were off to see the 115 foot Lucifer Falls. The Gorge Trail to Lucifer was closed so we took the Rim trail to the Lucifer Falls overlook. 






This is the Robert H. Treman Falls, it has a swimming area. 




The waterfall below is close to the Mill, I believe the name of this falls is Enfield Falls. 



The Mill and adjoining home were originally built in 1839 and restored in the 1920's. 


I am guessing this is a Hermit Thrush. Please let me know if I have the wrong id.  


Below is a view of the Lucifer Falls, to the right of the falls is the Gorge Trail which was closed the day we were there.  They were having a rescue training practice.  We saw them carrying back a dummy on a stretcher.  These are strenuous hikes, I am thankful for these rescue workers.  The trees were in the way, I could not get a full shot of the Lucifer Falls. 



The wildflower Trillium was seen all along the Rim trail. 


The Thrush seemed to be more out in the open, I did hear others birds like the Ovenbird, Northern Parula , Wood Thrush and possibly the Scarlet Tanagers.



On this day we were not done hiking just yet, after leaving the Robert H Treman SP we drove to the Taughannock Falls State Park.  I will share that waterfall and hike on another post.  



Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

  1. Now we have to have a serious talk, Eileen! You went past several wineries and didn't stop in for a wee taste and perhaps buy a bottle or two? My goodness! And you are correct with the ID of the Hermit Thrush, by the way.

  10. Love those waterfalls. There's a rejuvenating feeling I always get when I visit one! They say it's the negative-ions generated by the crashing water.

  13. Tänk om jag hade sådana häftiga vattenfall att fotografera, jag skulle kunna tillbringa många dagar där, bara lyssna till vattnet och ta mängder med bilder.
    Vilken härlig resa ni har haft!

  36. Eileen - you and I need to get together - these are just the sort of hikes that I like - waterfalls, woods, historic sites. The birds and wildflowers are a real bonus. How unique that there is a swimming area at one of the falls - seems to be akin to a good old fashioned swimming hole! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  40. what a beautiful walk you found, although given the rescue workers on the trail it is clearly no walk in the park! Love the colours, fresh air and beautiful scenery and of course the little birds you spotted!
