Waterfalls at Robert H. Treman State Park

Robert H. Treman State Park is a state park located in Tompkins County, New York in the United States. The park is located along State Route 327, just west of State Routes 13, 34, and 96, situated in the Towns of Ithaca, Enfield and Newfield.

The park has numerous waterfalls along a rigorous 4.5-mile (7.2 km) round-trip hike. Like many of the state parks in the Finger Lakes region, the hiking trails follow a small creek (Enfield Creek, in this case), giving many views of the rock formations in the deep, narrow gorge (Enfield Glen). A natural swimming pool is located at the easternmost waterfall, "Lower Falls." A large (over 100 ft (30 m). high), multi-tiered cascading waterfall, "Lucifer Falls," is a short hike from the top (western) part of the park. The most spectacular view of Lucifer falls can be found along the gorge trail, although there are also overlooks along the rim trail. Finger Lakes Trail skirts the southern edge of the park.

Because of dangerous conditions created by snow and ice, most of the park's trails are inaccessible in the winter. Visitors can view Lower Falls year-round.

The park offers a pool, picnic tables, playing fields, hiking and camping. The Enfield Falls Mill and Miller's House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

"Lucifer Falls" is also the name of a town in the Disney made-for-TV movies, Mr. Boogedy and Bride of Boogedy.[1]
