Triphammer Falls is a 55-foot (17 m) waterfall on Fall Creek in Ithaca, New York, located within the campus of Cornell University. The waterfall existed naturally but was altered substantially in order to construct a dam in the 19th century, leading to the formation of Beebe Lake. The dam is capable of regulating the water flow between 12–4,700 cubic feet (0.34–133.09 m3) per second. In 1997, a pedestrian bridge was built over Triphammer Falls to connect Central and North Campus.

  • The trail to this is situated across the road from the Cornell botanic gardens. It's free to park at the gardens on the weekend so you might as well walk the trail around Beebe lake to see the waterfall. Most of the trail is in the shade.
  • Absolutely beautiful views of Triphammer Falls and Fall Creek. Located next to the visitor center, it’s a must stop location for your first visit to the campus.
