Day two of four

Letchworth State park the Grand Canyon of the east

We spent our first full day exploring Letchworth State Park since there was so much to see!

imgIt’s known as the Grand Canyon of the East because some areas of the rock walls rise up to 550-feet throughout the gorge.

img

imgThe park has three large waterfalls upper, middle and lower falls along the Genesse River. They are deep within the gorge that winds through the 17-mile-long park.

Stone footbridge & Lower Falls in the distance

imgWe explored several short hikes. imgCheck the weather before you go. Some areas were muddy. I recommend wearing ankle high waterproof boots. As you can tell, I forgot to wear mine!
