Grand Canyon of the East

By Linda Tancs

New York’s Letchworth State Park is known as the Grand Canyon of the East because of its scenic gorge. Indeed, its magnificence can hardly be ignored, the Genesee River roaring over three major waterfalls amidst towering cliffs. Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, the park covers over 14,000 acres of land along the river. The locale is popular with campers, but those not interested in roughing it will find ample accommodations like guest houses, inns and lodges with light housekeeping. Given its size, there are no shortage of activities at this park, among them 66 hiking trails, guided walks, tours, swimming, kayaking and rafting. Hot air ballooning is a must to take in the glorious vistas.
