"Grand Canyon of the East"

This 14,350 acre (5807 hectares) state park, which is 17 miles (27 kilometers) long, is known as the "Grand Canyon of the East" because of its 600 foot (182 meters) deep gorge. Deep in the gorge, the Genesee River flows over 20 waterfalls, including three main ones. The park has 66 miles (106 kilometers) of hiking trails, along with trails for horseback riding, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. The land was once owned by William Pryor Letchworth, a Buffalo businessman, who donated the land to the state in 1859. Letchworth's former country estate, the Glen Iris Inn, is now a country inn and restaurant. Camping is also available at the park year-round. Entry fees and other charges vary by location, season and activities.
