When Is the Best Time
The best time to visit Chimney Bluffs State Park is during the summer, if you are hiking the trail along the bluffs you’ll be in and out of shaded areas. The bugs won’t be too bad because of the breeze off the lake.
Opening Hours and Fee
Chimney Bluffs State Park is open year-round from dawn to dusk. There is no entrance fee. However, from April 1 – October 31, a vehicle fee (5 USD) is being collected.
Where and Tips
Location: Wolcott, NY
These massive earthen spires are what they call the Chimney Bluffs. The views of the dramatic landscape make every bend in the trail more interesting than the one before. There are two main trails, one that takes you along the lakeshore, and the other, winding through gorgeous and varied woods above the bluffs that have outcroppings where you can sit and take in the scenery.
