Taughannock Falls in the Winter

January 3rd, 2013 by Katie Pate

A popular park nearby our Upstate NY bed and breakfast is Taughannock falls. This is still an amazing place to visit during the winter months. The waterfall is slightly taller than Niagara Falls. Visitors can reach an excellent view of the waterfall via a short 3/4-mile-long trail, which is open all year long.

Along with viewing the icy, frozen waterfall, enjoy some winter sports at Taughannock park, including sledding, ice-skating and cross country skiing. Plus, there are no parking or entry fees!

The bridge is always closed in the winter, but there is a good view of the falls just before the bridge.
