Staycation: Rock City Park

Wear comfortable shoes for this nature trek!

Once a fortress for Native peoples, Rock City Park near Olean, New York offers gigantic rocks to explore with the whole family.

Feel free to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the park’s picnic tables before descending crevice staircases that lead to trails strewn with boulders bigger than houses.

Co-owner Dale Smith say scientists claim the site (a prehistoric ocean floor) is the world’s largest exposure of quartz conglomerate.
