2011 hike is on the Letchworth Branch Trail

Hike: This hike, dubbed “The Reek Loop,” gives hikers the best of Letchworth in one hike. Starting on the east side of the park, hikers will be able to view all three waterfalls from both sides of the gorge. A short road walk takes us into the main Portageville entrance of the park, where we will then follow the Gorge Trail to view the falls from the west side. We will continue north, then cross over to the east side to make our way back to our cars. Some steep terrain, mostly even walking, approximately 7-8 miles. Pack water, trail lunch, and rain gear if appropriate.

Meet: Parade Grounds entrance, Rte 436 at 10:00 am

Directions to Meeting Location: From the south, take I-86 to I-390 North. Take Exit #4, Dansville, and follow Rte 36 North until it turns into 436. Follow 436 through Nunda.
