More About Panama Rocks

Panama Rocks is Chautauqua County’s premier nature park, in operation since 1885.

Come explore an enchanting world of towering rocks, deep crevices and passageways, cool, cavernous dens, and small caves! The rock formations are a unique outcrop of 300 million years old quartz conglomerate sedimentary rock that extend about half a mile and reach upwards of 60 feet tall – one of the largest of its kind in the world!

Grotesque roots snake down the rocks and delicate ferns, mosses, and lichens add to Panama Rock’s unique, jungle-like charm. The forest at Panama Rocks is recognized and included in The Sierra Club’s Guide to the Ancient Forests of the Northeast. The park is home to 300+ year old hemlocks, and other species of venerable trees, including ash, beech, black cherry, elm, red maple, and sugar maple.
