Sweedler and Thayer Nature Preserves

The Sweedler and Thayer Nature Preserves, with three major waterfalls and numerous cascades, are hidden gems located just outside of Ithaca, New York.

Managed by the Finger Lakes Land Trust, Sweedler Nature Preserve straddles Lick Brook and several other smaller tributaries, allowing the streams to flow wild and uninterrupted. The Thayer Nature Preserve continues east of Sweedler, protecting more of Lick Brook and valuable woodlands.
