Located on the western edge of the Finger Lakes region, Livingston County is home to two pristine lakes, Hemlock and Conesus, and two magnificent state parks, Stony Brook, located in Dansville at the southern tip of the county, and Letchworth State Park, known as “The Grand Canyon of the East.” Letchworth State Park was named the number one state park in the country! Summer guests can hike, bike, picnic, and swim in the park, or if you are feeling adventurous - go white water rafting on the Genesee River or float over waterfalls in a hot air balloon! Miles of snowmobile trails are available to winter adventurers, and autumn visitors will never forget the views created by the diverse variety of trees filling the expanse of the Genesee River Valley with a colorful palette ranging from golden amber to magenta.
Visitors to Stony Brook State Park will find 568 acres surrounding a scenic gorge cut by Stony Brook Creek. Campers and hikers will enjoy the park’s three large waterfalls and many smaller ones. While in Dansville, be on the lookout for fairies! Dansville is the first community in Western New York to install a Fairy Door Trail running through its business district and into the village park. You and your little ones will be delighted by the tiny, intricate passageways to a world of magic. At each business, fairy hunters can receive a map leading them through the trail.
Livingston County is the proud home of the National Warplane Museum and Airshow, chosen by USA Today as one of the best air shows in the country! The museum features restored, antique aircraft with knowledgeable locals who will happily share their love of aviation history with you. If you have always dreamed of soaring above the clouds, plane rides are available that will take you over our beautiful rural farmlands, woodlands, and “The Little Finger Lakes”, Conesus and Hemlock.
