OK Slip Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"After many years of waiting, we can now see the tallest waterfall in New York State at the end of a trail through a former logging district. By Adirondack standards, the 3-mile (one way) trail to OK Slip Falls is a walk in the park with a big, big payoff the first close-up views hikers have ever had of the tallest waterfall in New York State. Cascading 250 feet, this magnificent waterfall suddenly appears as you come off a pair of switchbacks at the end of the trail, a sight that had been denied hikers for more than a century as a large corporation held private ownership of this land.

Purchased by the Adirondack Nature Conservancy in 2007 and sold to New York State in 2013, OK Slip Falls and the surrounding 161,000 acres are now part of the Hudson Gorge Wilderness Area. It took another year for the state to complete this well-marked, nicely maintained trail—one just rugged enough to feel like an adventurous hike while easy enough for families to bring their children to see the spectacle of falling water."
