Renowned as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. 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. The historic, completely restored Glen Iris Inn offers overnight accommodations and is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Campers can take advantage of tent and trailer campsites or winterized cabins. For professional and organizational retreats, educational and training needs can be met at the Conference Center, where overnight Full Service Accommodations are possible. Group camping facilities are available as well. Hikers can choose among 66 miles of hiking trails. Trails are also available for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Two pools are open for swimming. Letchworth offers nature, history and performing arts programs, guided walks and tours, a summer lecture series, whitewater rafting, kayaking and hot air ballooning. The Humphrey Nature Center at Letchworth State Park offers year-round environmental education opportunities, open daily 10:00AM – 5:00PM.
