Letchworth State Park, renowned as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” is a 14,427-acre, scenically magnificent area in upstate New York (35 miles southwest of Rochester, 60 miles southeast of Buffalo). Park entrances are located near Mount Morris, Perry, Castile and Portageville. 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. This is a must-see location for any state park enthusiast, especially during the fall, with over 66 miles of trails! For those who are short on time, a paved two or three-lane road follows the west side of the gorge, allowing many scenic vistas.
