Taughannock Falls is New York State's highest at 215 feet, but is perhaps more remarkable for its composition. It drops from a shallow, V-shaped valley over the edge of a symmetrical, semicircular cliff, into a perfectly round plunge pool. It is one of the large number of waterfalls found along the glens and gulfs that border each of the Finger Lakes.
