Letchworth State Park, renowned as the "Grand Canyon of the East," is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. The Genesee River roars through the gorge over three major waterfalls between cliffs--as high as 600 feet in some places--surrounded by lush forests. Hikers can choose among 66 miles of hiking trails. Trails are also available for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Letchworth offers nature, history and performing arts programs, guided walks, tours, a summer lecture series, whitewater rafting, kayaking, a pool for swimming and hot air ballooning. Experiencing Letchworth by hot air balloon is unforgettable, as seen in this video clip. Winter activities include snow tubing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. The historic, completely restored Glen Iris Inn offers overnight accommodations and is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Banquet and catering services are available for your special events.

Gorgeous! Wouldn't say it's difficult in the least bit.

Gradual and not too challenging, great in the fall!

This park is a hidden gem, will always remain one of my favorites. This trail is easy and has so many rewarding views, especially during the fall.

Pretty nice autumn view

A must see in the Fall

We didn't see everything and need to go back for more!

I'll just say if you haven't been here, you need to go. Pronto. Bucket list. What-have-you. We camped here for 8 days a few years back and it was unforgettable. There are even a few hidden cascades on off beaten trails worth seeing.
