Letchworth State Park Day 1 (New York)
Letchworth State Park is known as the Grand Canyon of the East, featuring steep gorge walls, three massive waterfalls and 14,350 acres to explore. The park also features historic park properties and ameneties such as restaurants, gift shop, store and a variety of lodging ranging from tent campsites to a luxury hotel.
Located around 45 minutes south of Rochester, the park was an excellent place to meet up with Matty.
We spent Friday afternoon and evening exploring portions of the seven mile long Gorge Trail, visiting the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls. We also watched two hot air balloons being set up, inflated and then launched.
We rented a small cabin (D03) on the east side of the park with cots, a refridgerator, electric stove and oven, lights and plenty of outlets. The campground has flush toilets, showers, dumpsters and even washers and dryers.
