Chimney Bluffs State Park, NY


Chimney Bluffs State Park is a series of sharp pinnacles and cliffs that span the shore of Lake Ontario. Its formation is a result of the erosive power from wind, rain, snow, and waves. The erosion of the bluffs occurs at the rate of 1 to 5 feet per year. It is constantly changing and transforming. It is a nice place to take a hike or have a picnic.

Our family took the longest trail through and had a good view of the bluffs. We were high up and the trail overlooked the shore.


The peaks have a razor sharp appearance.


Golden rod lined the pathway.


To get a good view of the bluffs, I stood on the edge of the cliff and hung on to a tree.  I was in the adventurous mood and wanted to get some good photos.


Here is the valley below. It’s a long way down! If you look closely, you can see a person on the shore.


Here is the tree that fell into the path.

Chimney Bluffs State Park is a great place to visit with family.  Lake Ontario is a nice spot to go out by boat. It is also a good park to go hiking. There are different trails to choose from depending on how long and far you want to walk. The park is nicely preserved and will be an amazing landmark for generations to come.
