Eerie abandoned girl scout camp on the shores of Lake Ontario. Cool buildings to explore in and an overlook to a swamp area. Easy hiking

Great woodsy walk. Tons of old buildings and leantoos litter the area. The adjacent old overgrown Apple Farm is nice. Though having a map is suggested. You can get to the beach, from where the flagpole is. But it's littered with downed trees.

There is a more moderate difficult trail, with lots of ups and downs off the utility trail, from the kayak launch parking area.

The place as a whole has a pretty good amount of foot traffic.

I love coming here and hiking with my dog. an absolute amazing place.

Super fun and peaceful hike/explore

Short trail but enjoyable.

We absolutely love this trail network. There are several main trails that take you around and through the old scout camp. Several trails lead you to the Lake Ontario shoreline. You'll also come upon many abandoned campsites and buildings to explore. You can also take branch off onto many secondary trails that were created by scouts from years gone by.

Short hike from the parking lot to an overlook featuring great views across and expansive marsh and out to Lake Ontario. The trail winds through the woods, up and down a few hills. Trail may be muddy in spots with recent rain. Excellent nature hike to spot bull frogs, toads, white egrets, red-winged blackbirds, swan, and the American bald eagle. The trailhead is located at the East entrance to Beechwood State Park just off the parking area to the left, opposite the boat launch.

Trails everywhere great place to spend the day

Great location nice hike to the lakefront then you can hike along the lake, trail off parking lot area toward orchard leads you to the lake, other trail along the creek ends and does not take you to the lake.
