Ithaca Discovery Trail 

Atoms to artifacts, foxes to fossils, robins to rhododendrons, sculpture to storytellers – Ithaca’s Discovery Trail has something for everyone!

From peaceful walks to famous talks, from hands-on fun to genealogical research, there’s so much to see and do along the Discovery Trail. These eight fascinating sites are an easy drive from downtown Ithaca, Cornell University, Ithaca College, Cayuga Lake and other Finger Lakes attractions.
