Bing Optimized Panama Rocks: Chautauqua Tourism Attraction
Panama Rocks Scenic Park


Adventure is Waiting at Panama Rocks!

Panama Rocks will host two guided Valentine’s Weekend Winter Tours on Saturday, February 11th at 10:00am and 12:00pm.

Guests will experience the quiet, secluded beauty of Panama Rocks covered in snow, a sight that most people never have the chance to see, while learning about the park history, nature, and geology. Be sure to bring your camera!

Tours will last for about 60-90 minutes. Guests will hike for about one mile through the woods in the snow and should be capable of a moderately strenuous hike. Bathrooms are not available on site in the winter.

Tours are limited to 10-12 people, and require a minimum of 6 people. Panama Rocks reserves the right to cancel tours with less than 6 people signed up three days before the tour.

Boots are recommended, and snow shoes may be a good idea depending on how much it snows before the tour. You can bring your own snow shoes, or rent them from Evergreen Outfitters in Mayville or Peek’n Peak in Clymer.

Spaces are limited so reserve your spot today by booking online, emailing, or calling 716-782-2845.


Panama Rocks is closed for regular admission until early May 2017. Guided group tours are available in the off-season (November through April) by appointment only. Guided tours cost $10 per person and a minimum four reservations are required per tour. Please email for more information.

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 (45 minutes from Erie and 90 minutes from Buffalo), Panama Rocks has been the #1-rated attraction in Chautauqua County based on independent reviews on TripAdvisor for over five years!

The formations at Panama Rocks are surrounded by a one mile long hiking trail, but most guests enjoy going off of the main trail to explore! Whether you take a casual hike in the woods or climb through the countless passageways, caves, and crevices, how much you do is up to you! Visitors spend anywhere from one hour to the entire day having fun and exploring the park. Picnic tables are available, so bring a lunch and enjoy your day with us!

Panama Rocks is perfect for families, couples, or individuals looking to spend time in nature. Our hiking 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! Strollers and wheelchairs are not recommended on the trail. For more information visit our Park Information page.

Panama Rocks is open daily, 10:00am until 5:00pm, from early May until late October. Local residents and frequent visitors may want to take advantage of our Season Pass and membership to Panama Rocks, which allows members to visit the park all season for one low price. Plan your trip to explore one of the most fun, popular, and affordable “things to do” in Western New York today!

Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No pets are allowed – sorry.
