Explore and learn about the nature of this rock city with Tim Baird.

The Little Rock City in the Township of Little Valley, New York north of the City of Salamanca is a 'rock city' of Salamanca Conglomerate rock exposed at an elevation of approximately 2200 feet. At this location, large blocks of the conglomerate rock are separating from their parent layer and gravity is moving them downhill. In addition to being of local geological interest, the location lies within the Rock City State Forest. The surrounding forest is a habitat of mature trees and hosts many interesting plants and animals, including several species of birds. 

The visit will last from two to three hours in exploration of this interesting natural area. Little Rock City can be accessed by turning off Route 219 north of Salamanca on to Hungry Hollow Road then turning left on to the Little Rock City road at the top of the hill and continuing to the end. Alternatively, one can use Whig Street, turning off from Route 353 north of Elkdale.  Hungry Hollow Road can be then accessed turning right from Whig Street and continuing to the top of the hill then right on to the Little Rock City road.

Tim Baird, a Salamanca resident and nature enthusiast, will lead the walk. Tim is a retired teacher and has lead walks for many years at the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage. He has spent much time studying local natural history and enjoys nature photography.
