What They Are about
Known as the "The Grand Canyon of the East", The Middle Falls of the Genesee River was definitely our favorite of the three major waterfalls on the Genesee River in Letchworth State Park as it was easily the largest and most spectacular of them all. The extensive network of walkways around the falls allowed us to photograph and enjoy it from plenty of different vantage points. We started off by visiting its brink, then we walked further downstream along the gorge allowing us to get even more views of the falls from various angles.
There was also the closest frontal view of the falls where we could best appreciate the breadth of the wall of water while also getting a little bit of its spray.
