One of the highlights of any visit to Letchworth State Park is a visit to Inspiration Point. The views of Middle Falls and Upper Falls are spectacular from here. In the distance, visitors can see the Genesee Arch Bridge. These views make it without a doubt one of the best overlooks in Upstate New York.
Visitors can drive right up to Inspiration Point and park. There are also hiking options to get to the point. Visitors can opt to hike Trail #1 from Upper Falls or Middle Falls to get to the overlook. Many visitors take the Gorge Trail to Inspiration Point and Lower Falls. This trail is 4.1 miles out and back. It has beautiful views and is well-kept. Leashed dogs are welcome at Inspiration Point.
