Businessman's Lunch Fallls is a set of four cascading falls - 30ft, 5ft, 15ft, 15f - and is popular lunch spot for downtown office workers.
Today, Six Mile Creek is Ithaca’s source for drinking water but a century ago its falls were harnessed for power. Beauty and history are highlights at Businessman’s Lunch, a.k.a. Wells Falls, where the creek tumbles 65ft in four drops against the backdrop of an old millwork.
View falls from Giles St. bridge or a short hike on Six Mile Creek Trail. 0.2mi. It is an easy trail to walk.
Open year round, but often impassible in winter due to ice.
