Panama Rocks Scenic Park


Let Nature Amaze You at Panama Rocks!

Explore a half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rock forming crevices, passageways, and caves hidden in an ancient forest! Located just 15 minutes from Chautauqua Lake, Panama Rocks is one of the top-rated attractions in Chautauqua County based on independent reviews on TripAdvisor.

The Panama Rocks formations are surrounded by a one mile long hiking trail, but most guests enjoy going off of the main trail to explore! Visitors spend anywhere from 1-hour to the entire day exploring the park. Picnic tables are available.

The trail is relatively easy to hike (Class 1) and guests of all ages enjoy it, but there are roots, rocks, and uneven ground; it is still a hiking trail! For more information visit our Park Information page.

Panama Rocks is open daily for the 2014 season from 10:00am to 5:00pm until late October. Plan your trip to explore one of the most popular “things to do” in Western New York today!

Whenever I need to clear my mind and brighten my mood, I take a walk in the woods. :)

But look around at this world, how perfectly it’s made. Flowers can’t move, yet the insects come to them and spread their pollen. Trees can’t move either, but birds and animals eat their fruit and carry their seeds far and wide. – Nahoko Uehashi,
