Letchworth State Park, renowned as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” features spectacular vistas of raging waterfalls and of deep canyons.
Approximately 1½ miles wide and 17 miles long, Letchworth State Park is centered around the Genesee River as it snakes its way down over three major waterfalls and through a deep and remote canyon. It features countless vistas, such as Inspiration Point, more than 30 waterfalls on tributaries, 66 miles of hiking trails, large campgrounds, whitewater rafting and kayaking, hot air ballooning, museums, and historic buildings. There are also trails for horseback riding, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.
The historic Glen Iris Inn offers overnight accommodations and features a restaurant that is open to the public for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Humphrey Nature Center offers interactive exhibits highlighting the unique ecology, geology, and wildlife of the park.
