Little too close to the ridge, for you who are afraid of heights, but otherwise nice trail to the bridge and back (up the hill!)

What a great short hike, portage to the foot bridge. Breath taking views of the falls and the foot bridge over the Genesee river. Easy for kids and new hikers.

Falls are amazing and worth the stop. I recommend a picnic lunch in one of the quiet parks then hit a few of the walks. The cons of this state park are it's super crowded and some trails are beat up and could use maintenance. Besides some of the longer walks it's really more for kids and tourists.

Bring bug repellent!

This is the #6 Trail - Portage Trail at Letchworth State Park. Heading out from the trailhead, the trail is mostly downhill towards the river, so obviously, the return trip is mostly uphill. The trail is somewhat muddy at 2 different spots, one muddy spot was by the footbridge at the bottom, so appropriate footwear is necessary. The trail may be difficult for smaller dogs. There are some overlooks into the canyon during the upper part of the trail, and the views from which and from the footbridge make this a very good trail.
