Cayuga Waterfront Trail

The Cayuga Waterfront Trail is an initiative of the Chamber of Commerce that is a vital part of the Ithaca community.

The 5.5 mile Cayuga Waterfront Trail (CWT) was completed in 2016, after a fifteen-year planning, fundraising and construction effort. The trail has transformed Ithaca's relationship to the waterfront and represents the centerpiece of an emerging regional trail network that includes the newly-opened first phase of the Black Diamond Trail.


The Cayuga Waterfront Trail Initiative (CWTI) is now looking to its next phase of work in assisting the City of Ithaca to manage the trail and optimize its benefits. Many benefits can result from a well-managed trail system including enhancing public health through active living, contributing to a more healthy and energy-efficient transportation network, and improving our community’s recreation and tourism resources.   


The Waterfront Trail features a series of interpretive panels describing the natural and cultural history of Ithaca’s waterfront. However, these panels are still lacking one important story: the legacy of competitive rowing along the Cayuga Lake inlet. Click the link below to help tell this story along the beautiful waterfront trail.
