View of the Upper Falls at Taughannock Falls State Park from the old railroad trestle across the gorge on the Rim Trail
Many visitors to Taughannock Falls State Park near Trumansburg, NY never discover this second high waterfall about half a mile upstream from the main waterfall, at the head of the Upper Gorge. The falls makes a 90 degree twist on its way down, forced to do so by the natural “architectural jointing” of the rocks that controls the direction of the gorge.
