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 one hour to the entire day having fun and 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 will reopen for the 2015 season in early May 2015. Plan your trip to explore one of the most fun and popular “things to do” in Western New York today!

Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

On the first day of winter, the earth awakens to the cold touch of itself. Snow knows no other recourse except this falling, this sudden letting go over the small gnomed bushes, all the emptying trees. Snow puts beauty back into the withered and malnourished, into the death-wish of nature and the deliberate way winter insists on nothing less than deference. waiting all its life, snow says, “Let me cover you.” – Laura Lush, The First Day of Winter

It’s in every one of us to be wise. Find your heart, open up both your eyes. We can all know everything, without ever knowing why. It’s in every one of us, by and by. – David Pomeranz

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays, ‘Cause no matter how far away you roam, When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze, For the holidays, you can’t beat home, sweet home. – Al Stillman
