AAA Editor Notes
Letchworth State Park is 2 mi. n. on SR 19A to Denton's Corners, then 2 mi. e. to Castile entrance. Although “Grand Canyon of the East” may be a bit of an overstatement, the steep-walled gorge through which the Genesee River pours does provide a spectacular, picture-postcard backdrop for a whole host of recreational activities, not the least of which is outdoor photography. The park protects more than 14,000 heavily forested acres along the gorge and offers cabins, a campground, picnic areas and paved roads lined with scenic overlooks, among them popular Inspiration Point.

The don't-miss park highlight is photogenic Middle Falls, where the river roars over a 107-foot-high bluff. It's illuminated until 11 p.m., May-Oct., but as the name implies, there is also an Upper and Lower falls nearby as well as smaller cascades along tributaries such as Wolf Creek. The best time to visit is in fall when the forest ignites with the russets and golds of autumn.

More than 60 miles of trails meander through the woods; some of these also are open to bikers, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. You can swim in the park's pool, and kayak, tube and go white-water rafting in the river.

Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
