Letchworth State Park

Letchworth State Park, often referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the East," is one of New York's most spectacular natural treasures. Spanning roughly 14,000 acres along the Genesee River, the park is famed for its stunning vistas, three major waterfalls — the Upper, Middle, and Lower Falls — and the dramatic cliffs that tower up to 600 feet above the river. Located in western New York, south of Rochester, Letchworth offers a myriad of activities for visitors, including over 66 miles of hiking trails, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and hot air ballooning, providing unique ways to experience the breathtaking scenery.
