Imagine...being able to walk, bike or ski from Lake Ontario in Rochester to Letchworth State Park, and on south to New York's Southern Tier, along a 90-mile path that winds through woodlands, farmlands and peaceful stream valleys. You might want to stop for a picnic along the Genesee River, visit a restored Genesee Valley Canal lock or take a side trip to a local museum or historic village.
The purpose of the Genesee Valley Hunt is to foster and promote the sport of fox hunting, to preserve and care for wildlife, and to conserve open spaces. The GVH operates on the generosity and good will of its neighboring landowners and farmers. The GVH is funded primarily by individual contributions from its members. The Hunt sponsors the Genesee Valley Hunt Races every second Saturday in October, featuring exciting steeplechasing and family fun of all kinds. More at GVHRaces.com
The Humphrey Nature Center at Letchworth State Park opened in June 2016 and offers year-round environmental education opportunities for school groups, scouts, youth organizations, and the general public. Programming at the center focuses on the main topics of interest around the park, including geology, wildlife and botany. The building is open daily 10:00AM – 5:00PM.
The Humphrey Nature Center houses many interactive exhibits that especially highlight the plants and animals, geology and river ecology of Letchworth State Park. A video through the gorge during each of the four seasons plays on a loop on the face of a large reconstruction of the gorge wall. There is also large classroom/meeting space in the building.
Outside the Humphrey Nature Center you will find an outdoor classroom, butterfly garden, a bird observation station, and sustainable features such as solar panels and a cistern for collecting rainwater. There are trails that leave from the center that bring visitors to different points of interest such as Trout Pond, Inspiration Point Overlook and patches of old growth forest.
