check out the great gorges of Ithica stay at my favourite resort La Tourelle Also a stunning La Tourelle walk not to be missed! La Tourelle to Lower Buttermilk Falls - walk out the resort's front door and follow the Buck Trail into Upper Buttermilk Falls State Park. The trail will lead you through Upper Buttermilk and all the way down to Lower Buttermilk on the Gorge Trail. It takes a little over an hour and the hike is all downhill...and La Tourelle will pick-up guests and bring them back to the resort if they don't want to do the uphill return hike!
