The gorges of Cornell distinguish the campus’ natural beauty, but the dangers inherent within them means that visitors need to RESPECT the gorges. We ask that all visitors be aware of the danger, hazards, and the power of nature in the gorges. Please respect these natural areas, follow all posted signs, and take all precautions possible to protect yourself – failure to do so could cost you your life.
