South Hill Attractions
- South Hill Recreation Way – Once a part of the railway for the Cayuga-Susquehanna line, the South Hill Recreation Way is a 3.5-mile multi-use trail for walkers, joggers, and nature-lovers — a popular spot for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. The Rec Way runs along the Six Mile Creek Natural Area, with a playground and a basketball court nears its west entrance.
- Sunset Grill – A local favorite for casual, hearty diner food, the Sunset Grill is popular with Ithaca College students and locals alike for its reasonable prices and comfort-food menu.
- Giles Street Pedestrian Bridge – This pedestrian bridge spans the Six Mile Creek gorge, connecting South Hill with Collegetown via the Six Mile Creek Neighborhood. It’s an easy stroll from Giles Street, across the bridge, to Gola Osteria — a high-end Italian restaurant hidden away in the historic Quarry Arms building.
- First Dam/ Wells Falls – A popular local hang-out in the warmer months and a dramatic setting year-round. The abandoned mill building at the top of the falls is a unique backdrop for the four-stage cascade that drops for a total of 65 feet through the Six Mile Creek gorge.
- Mulholland Wildflower Preserve – Further upstream from Wells Falls, the trail through the Wildflower Preserve stretches for five miles along Six Mile Creek to the base of Second Dam, traveling through a beautiful wooded landscape along the way. Runners and hikers can travel all the way to Northeast Ithaca along the creek on this trail system.
