Hike the Eldridge Wilderness Loop

Eldridge Wilderness Parking Lot - Search Nearby - Added by Jake Sells

Escape the popular crowded gorge hikes in Ithaca, for a scenic, forest educational hike.

Park in the designated lot directly off Troy Rd and begin the loop at the only trail entering the parking area (the lot only holds about 4-5 vehicles).

Because this is a loop trial, when it splits after 200 yards take either route and still end at the parking area. The loop is 2.3 miles long and a great hike or escape for families with children and/or dogs.
