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!

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

I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it. – Rosalia de Castro
