OK Slip Falls

The highest waterfall in the Adirondacks has been unavailable to explore, accept distant views from trail less Kettle Mountain, until now.  New York State purchased the 2800 acres of what is now called the OK Slip Falls Tract on April 23, 2013.   The seldom seen OK Slip Falls will become one of the popular destinations in the Adirondacks. 

There are no official trails yet to OK Slip Falls, however the NY DEC is hoping to have a newly built trail from a future parking area along NY 28 to the waterfall by September 2014. We hope the DEC constructs a large enough parking area to handle the traffic. The access road on the map below is a private access road to OK Slip Pond, which is still PRIVATELY OWNED. We suggest waiting until the new trail is officially opened before exploring this soon to popular destination.

There are few pictures found of the falls, here is one from NY Falls website, taken from Kettle Mountain. The waterfall drops over 200 feet into a gorge.  We will be updating this page when we get more info. Please send us any info that you might find to share with other hikers. Here is a video from The Nature Conservancy.
