Bing Optimized Panama Rocks: Chautauqua Tourism Attraction
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 (less than an hour from Erie and 90 minutes from Buffalo), 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.

Plan your trip to explore one of the most fun and popular “things to do” in Western New York today – Panama Rocks is open daily 10:00am until 5:00pm.

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

If you don’t get outside in the next few weeks, you are really missing out! The foliage is beginning to change color in strength, and the forest has a lovely, subtle smell of fall leaves. Make sure you spend some time outside and enjoy this lovely season! #PanamaRocks
