A short drive from the Canandaigua / Rochester KOA is the Letchworth State Park, which encompasses the Genesee River as it flows through a deep gorge and over a series of large waterfalls – the Upper, Middle, and Lower Falls. It’s been nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the East” due to its 550-foot-high gorge walls, with a paved road along the west side offering access to a series of scenic viewpoints. Hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking are all popular recreational activities in the park, together with snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snow tubing during the winter months.

Around 30 miles of hiking trails wind through the area, including the 12-mile-long Interloken Trail and the short but sweet Burnt Hill Loop.
