Anyone will love the picturesque views of the park including 3 sets of falls. You will have to go to see its beauty. I would write more but you will have to experience it for yourself.

My big surprise was the Glen Iris Inn. I had read about it 20+ years ago and to my surprise found myself right there. I was delighted that a dream has come true - sort of - to be there, but not stay there. I was glad to view the falls and have many other walks in the entire park.... More

This is a beautiful small state park in upstate New York. Its has been voted as the best state park in 2015 I love it as well however this is finally a matter of taste. I have been there twice now for hiking the first time in fall and now again in winter for snow shoe hiking. I'm sure it's... More

This is a beautiful small park off the beaten trail. All four seasons give some spectacular movies with. I especially like the park in the fall when the leaves are turning on the trees. The waterfall cut in the gorge has a lovely maintained trail with picturesque vies of the river and falls. Accommodations for the non hiker are available.... More

I am happy that this park finally got the recognition that it deserves. I am blessed that I only live about five miles from Letchworth park. I have been there more times than I can even count. I remember my first time visiting after moving here from Connecticut back in 1973 . It was one of the most awesome thing... More

That being the Grand Canyon of the East. Remarkably beautiful state park in Northeast New York. Our visit was just before the majority of leaves started to turn. Can only imagine how magnificent it would be if dull fall foliage! Given the option, stay overnight at the Glen Iris Inn. At the very least, stop in there fro a cocktail... More

It's about 17 miles worth of driving through the park. We did a few scenic lookouts but the main thing was the lower, middle and upper falls. You had to walk a little to all three. The Lower Falls you could walk the easy trail that gives you a view from above the falls which you couldn’t even see much,... More

We took a crepuscular hike (I had to look it up -- twilight) on the eve of the winter solstice. It was overcast, cold, windy. We figured we'd be the only people there, but 8 other hiking enthusiasts showed up, along with one fantastic guide! The trail was a bit muddy and slippery here and there (next time I'll wear...
