    Eternal Flame

    Eternal Flame Hiking Trail, Orchard Park, NY 14127

    We were shocked to find so many people that didn't know what the Eternal Flame was. If you hike down the gorge at Chestnut Ridge Park and you get to the waterfall, underneath is a flame that is always lit because it emits a natural gas.

    If you've never been you have to make it a point to go this Summer.

    Rock City

    Rock City is sweet! It's really a little bit of a drive from Buffalo, in Olean but it's really cool--it's an entire mini 'city' made out of rocks. The paths cut right through the quartz conglomerate all over the place. If you're looking for an adventure this is it!

    Royalton Ravine Park

    Gasport Rd, Gasport, NY 14067

    Bet you didn't know this: The first woman to ever run for President in the United States was Belva Ann Lockwood and her remains are located here in the park! There's trails and waterfalls and it's a nice spot for an adventure.
