by the grand staircase: lucifer falls

as mentioned with the previous image, devil’s kitchen (the waterfall) leads to the 115′ state park showpiece called lucifer falls.  here it is photographed from a section of steps that affords a view of about half the waterfall…

falls by the steps: devil’s kitchen

there are 12 waterfalls within the robert h. treman state park; 3 of them, apparently, are named. the 115′ lucifer falls and the lower falls that give way to a swimming area are the main attractions, as it were… 

This is a section of falls just before lucifer falls, known as devil’s kitchen.

deep and narrow

most of the write-ups on the robert h. treman state park refer to enfield glen as the deep and narrow gorge to be found there…

we spent most of the afternoon at taughannock falls state park and still had a couple of hours of daylight left when we decided to visit lucifer falls, the 115 waterfall showpiece of this state park. we had no expectations as we did not know what to expect… a feast for the eyes is appropriate. 

having parked in the upper parking lot, we made our way along the trails that led to the aforementioned gorge. just as you enter the gorge, you are greeted by this magnificent sight of enfield creek and the tall rock walls that lead to lucifer falls a few minutes downstream.

downriver (colour and b&w)

the lower falls trail of letchworth state park essentially begins at the ‘127 steps’ that lead you lower into the genessee river gorge. once at the bottom of the stairway, the trail splits. to the right will take you right to the falls (as per the previous image post: the lower falls) while to the left will take you towards a bridge and the river itself. this is a downriver view at some point along the ‘left’ trail.

the lower falls (colour and b&w)

Lower Falls

Lower Falls (B&W)

referred to as the ‘grand canyon of the east ‘ by locals, letchworth state park is a feast for the eyes! photographed here is one of the three main waterfalls along the genessee river gorge: the lower falls. it is approached via a lovely hike through a wooded area that leads to the ‘127 steps’ taking you lower into the gorge. with a gorgeous fall day and vibrant foliage colours, i was in my element!
