Six Mile Creek Natural Area

The Six Mile Creek Gorge is a diverse ecological area consisting of streams, gorges, waterfalls, marshland, forest, and meadows of goldenrods, asters, shrub thickets or young forests. The natural area offers level, creekside walks in the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve on the north side of Six Mile Creek. Steep cliffside trails can be found on either side of the creek. This area contains the City of Ithaca's reservoirs and is also designated as a unique natural area. The area has many miles of unimproved and minimally maintained trails on both sides of the gorge from the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve to the 60' Dam. All blue-blazed trails on both sides of the creek are kept clear of obstructions.
