Livingston County is located southwest of Rochester, east of Buffalo.  The population in the county, according to the 2010 Census, was 65,393.  The county seat is Geneseo, which is also the home of SUNY at Geneseo.  The county is named after Robert Livingston, who was a delegate of the 1775 Continental Congress and a member of the committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence.

The Genesee River flows north through the county.  Letchworth State Park is the most visited outdoor recreational destination in the county. The Letchworth Trail travels 25+ miles on the eastern side of the state park.  The Genesee Valley Greenway makes its way through the county as well.  A short section of the 4600 mile North Country National Scenic Trail also passes through the county.  The Finger Lakes Trail coincides with the NCT on its journey through the county.

There are several state forests in the county to explore including the scenic Hemlock-Canadice State Forest, which features two beautiful lakes and 14 miles of hiking trails.  Two Wildlife Management Areas are located in Livingston County.
