Potter's Falls on Six Mile Creek is a 25 ft. cascading fall, and is considered to be Ithaca's favorite sunbathing spot.
Potter’s Falls (a.k.a. Green Tree Falls) is on Six Mile Creek, a natural area full of cascades, rock formations and wildflowers—so many that it was designated a wildflower preserve in 1970. The trail’s first mile is believed to hold the greatest wildflower diversity in the state.
Hike upstream on Greenway Trail & East Gorge Trail: 2.4mi. Caution, steep sections with poor footing. Moderate difficulty.
Open year round, but often impassible in winter due to ice.
