Now open: Newman Arboretum and Cascadilla Gorge Trail!
Cornell Plantations' F. R. Newman Arboretum will be reopened to vehicles this Friday, March 16th. Last year, the arboretum was open on April 1st, so spring appears to have arrived ahead of schedule this year!
The Cascadilla Gorge Trail from Linn Street in Downtown Ithaca, to the Stewart Avenue bridge is now open. Repairs continue on the section from the Stewart Avenue bridge to Collegetown and that section remains closed.
From our flowering tree collection to early-blooming flowers along the Treman Woodland Walk, the arboretum is an ideal place to watch spring unfold.
Take time to check out the gate (now open) that was installed last fall at the start of the gorge trail downtown.
