East Branch Sacandaga Gorge Professional Review and Guide
"The East Branch of the Sacandaga River has a spectacular gorge with a serene waterfall and swimming hole that you can reach in two different ways. The most direct and clearest route is to follow the southern footpath to Square Falls. The most scenic and adventurous route is to ford the river and then bushwhack along the northern banks. Neither route is very long, and the two are easily combined if you choose to ford the river twice.
There are no trail signs or indications of the trailhead either in the expansive parking area or from NY 8, so pay attention to your odometer, as there are numerous unmarked parking areas along NY 8."
