Fall color leaves, Letchworth State Park, Portageville, New York, USA. In Letchworth State Park, renowned as the "Grand Canyon of the East," the Genesee River roars northeast through a gorge over three major waterfalls between cliffs as high as 550 feet, surrounded by diverse forests which turn bright fall colors in the last three weeks of October. The large park stretches 17 miles between Portageville and Mount Morris in the state of New York, USA. Drive or hike to many scenic viewpoints along the west side of the gorge. The best walk is along Gorge Trail #1 above Portage Canyon from Lower Genesee Falls (70 ft high), to Inspiration Point, to Middle Genesee Falls (tallest, 107 ft), to Upper Genesee Falls (70 ft high). High above Upper Falls is the railroad trestle of Portageville Bridge, built in 1875, to be replaced 2015-2016. Letchworth's huge campground has 270 generously-spaced electric sites.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
