Enfield Glen

Enfield Glen

Enfield Glen, encompassed within Treman State Park near Ithaca, New York, features two large waterfalls and numerous cascades.

The park is named after Robert and Laura Treman, who acquired much of the land surrounding the glen and built many of the initial trails and bridges in the glen. The couple donated 380 acres to the state in the 1920’s. Today, at 1,022 acres, the reserve is large enough to offer a sense of tranquility that can often be missed in other often crowded recreation areas.

Enfield Glen is much like other narrow canyons in the Finger Lakes, featuring numerous small waterfalls and a few larger keepsakes. It features the 70-foot Lower Falls, which serves as the basis for a natural swimming pool that is dammed during the summer months. Further up the glen, via the Gorge Trail, is Lucifier Falls, which tumbles down 115-feet of limestone and shale.
