“a "gorges" display of rock and water”
The lower section of Cascadilla Gorge is truly a "gorges" display of rock, water and trees. Cascadilla Creek drops 400 feet from campus to downtown Ithaca, carving through bedrock - shales, siltstone and sandstone - exposing sedimentary rocks that were deposited 400 million years ago. Look for ripple marks on the rock surface, which once was the muddy floor of an ancient ocean. Here also is a tremendous variety of forest and creek habitats packed into a small area.
If you take a good look of Cascadilla Gorge then you can see what nature can create. This place was sculpted by natural phenomena and now it becomes a serene place for visitors to help them relax and be inspired.
There is nothing much to do if you want to go and spend adventurous times, but there is plenty to do if you are a person that loves nature and hiking.
Wear appropriate shoes so you can walk at the rocks and enjoy!!!!
