This hidden treasure offers an epic landscape overlooking Lake Ontario. Ginormous earthen spires surround the shore.

Parking is $5 per vehicle, and bathrooms are located in the same parking lot. Open year round dawn to dusk.

Stop by for a picnic overlooking Lake Ontario, go on a nature walk, or hang out by the rocky pebble beach. The Bluff Trail takes your breath away, it doesn't feel like upper state New York what so ever. The hike is great for pictures and only takes about an hour and half to complete. Loop around beginning on the shore line with the spires on your left and end the nature walk through the green earthy forest. The trail is easy and moderate but be extra careful with children and pets, there are plenty of scary drop offs leading to the spires.

Note: hands down one of my favorite parks in upper state New York.
