Little Rock City is one of several areas in the southern part of Western New York identified by its unique rock formations. The rocks were formed throughout 2 million years of glacial freezing and thawing. This continuous pattern caused the fractures in the rocks to widen and eventually split, creating massive boulders.

Overtime the rocks have been weather and covered with moss. They have formed rock bridges, strange shapes, small crevasses to crawl through and many places to climb and explore.

It's a great place to hang out for the day or take kids to.

*NOTE: Be careful when climbing up the boulders, as many are covered with moss and very slippery.

This area is popular for hunters during deer season in the fall.

Directions:

Take Rt. 219 south into Ellicottville.

From Ellicottville take Rt. 242 west. After about 3 miles the road will branch to the left and turn into Whig St.

After 2 miles on Whig St. turn left at the church onto Hungry Hollow Rd.(unmarked). Continue for about 1 mile until you see a dirt road with trail markers.

Stop there and park on the road. Take the trail to the right for about 2 miles to Little Rock City.
