This trail, while quite short is an excellent destination for photographers and bird watchers. You will first need to pinpoint the metal gate which marks the start of the trail. This is not too difficult, just be sure to look for it just west of the entrance to the NYS Golden Beach Campground. There is parking for 2-3 cars. Passing by the gate you will be on an old access road that brings you through a grass field with an attractive wetland to your left.
As you continue by the wetland there are a few small areas that you can approach the shore, but don’t get too close the edges are a bit unstable in parts. This opens up great opportunities for birding and wildlife photography. As you continue through you will notice a split in the trail. Right will lead you around to above the falls – the area above the falls is not recommended for young children. The left fork will lead to the base of the falls. At this point you should be able to hear the water pouring to the rocks below. You will have a small stream crossing to where you will be able to see the falls to the right.
Death Falls is a wide fan ... Read more
