A surprisingly nice nature center considering it is more of a hiker/rock climber area than a tourist attraction. Nothing to add to the other descriptions about the center itself. The area has many very nice roads to explore, especially for motorcyclists, and there are several small local towns within 20-30 minutes drive that have good local restaurants to try.

We could see a hiker at the top! Great displays here. Very informative! This center wasn't around when I was a kid and we came to see Seneca Rocks; so, it was fun to stop in.

This is an excellent facility and a must visit if in the area! They have special events on some weekends and have a nice gift. The restrooms are also well kept

Information was very good. The center itself is pretty new and has some paths which lead off into the distance for those on 2 feet, 4 feet or wheels. View scope on terrace lets you track the rock climbers. Great for children with hands on activities. Avoid the traffic, wires and people and come here to take your photos of... More

Great visit. Very informative and a lot of things to do for children. I learned a great deal about the mountains and recent discoveries.

Misty day, so we didn't do the hiking trail. We also wanted to go horseback riding, but didn't check on it due to being wet out. Wished the weather was better, will have to visit again. However, the visitor center is pet friendly.

The center was very nice and it was also very kid friendly. There was a section of the building just for kids to do activities. My 3 year old son colored and played with puzzles. We also liked the wooden rocking chairs looking out the larges glass windows at the rock formations.

This is a very nice center with plenty of information and a cute gift shop. The Park Rangers were friendly and helpful. And of course you couldn't beat the view of the rocks from the back deck area.

While we didn't go in the Discovery Center itself, the park is very nice. Clean, well kept, and the views are incredible!

This place was so neat. We loved walking around. Borrowed binoculars from one of the staff and got to watch climbers on Seneca Rocks, right out the huge windows in back. Awesome-ness! Lots of cool gift ideas. Lots of good books. Gifts very reasonably priced. I got two glasses, a t-shirt, stickers, magnets, books, a Melissa and Doug floor puzzle...all... More
