Directions: From the intersection of Highway 173 and Highway 92 in manlius, take Highway 173 southwest for .8 miles. Turn right onto Glencliffe Road and drive .5 miles to a parking area on the right just before the curve.

Length of Hike:  Approximate 1.6 miles round trip on the direct trail to the base of the falls.

Parking areas: N42.99742 W75.99968
From the parking area you will enter the trail to the left. Take the trail to the left. Walk about .3 miles and you will come to another trail intersection. Go left here. You will go down a little hill to the stream bed. Follow the stream. You will quickly come to what is left of a dam, which is now very colorful with graffiti. Continue on from here for another .4 miles to the base of the falls. Between the dam and the falls you will have passed by a campsite. If only people would pick up their garbage!! This is not what appears to be a true campsite but more of a party place. We chose to do the loop, and took the trail that goes along the top of the cliff to the top of the falls. Use caution, as you get closer to the top the trail gets closer to the edge. The trail becomes more of a path then a trail, walking on rocks or boulders as some would say. When you get to the top, there are paths to get you down to the base of the falls. Use caution, as this can be dangerous with rain and snow or ice. From the base looking at the three waterfalls from left to right is Staircase Falls, in the middle is Tall Twin Falls and then Cascade Falls.
