Bathrooms in parking lot at visitor center
This trail can become extremely muddy and icy in the wintertime.
From the visitors center parking lot find the Shades of Death trailhead and follow the path along the stream. The trail will eventually climb up abruptly and run adjacent to Rt 534 briefly before dipping back down into the woods along the stream. Continuing on will reveal many beautiful scenes along the water as well as lush grown and interesting rock formations. Ultimately you'll be rewarded with a beautiful waterfall originating from a reservoir created by a stone wall. These are the remains of an old logging mill dating back to the early 1800's.
