The southern part of Cattaraugus County is the only area of western New York that was not covered by the last ice age glaciation and is noticeably more rugged than neighboring areas that had peaks rounded and valleys filled by the glacier. A continental divide between the Mississippi River and Great Lakes watersheds runs through Cattaraugus County.
