Hiking in Adirondack Park
Grass River Wild Forest
Located just off Tooley Pond Road in the Grass River Wild Forest of the northwestern region of Adirondack Park is the Sinclair Falls Trail. This short hike of just a couple hundred feet leads to the 20 foot slanted waterfall on the Grass River. There are two trails that lead to the falls.
There is a small parking area on the left side of the road (for those driving from NY 3/Cranberry Lake) with a kiosk. The GPS coordinates of the parking area along Tooley Pond Road are N44 20.307 W75 02.696 for those who have a GPS devise in their vehicle. The parking area is 14.7 miles along Tooley Pond Road from NY 3 and Cranberry Lake or about 8.9 miles from Tooley Pond. The parking area is just after the intersection with Lake George Road.
From the parking area there is a steep herd path that descends from the parking area and the trail quickly reaches the falls. We recommend taking the other trail to the falls. The other trail is located along Lake George Road, just before the bridge over the Grass River. There is a small pull off parking area. The GPS coordinates of the pull off is N44 20.267 W75 02.723 for those who have a gps devise.
There is another trail that follows an old tote road that leads 0.5 miles to a scenic spot along Randall Brook. The trail starts directly across from Lake George Road at the junction of Tooley Pond Road. There is a rock barricade that marks the start of the trail. The Randall Brook Trail is off limits during fall hunting season as it is located on Conservation Easement Lands.
To return, simply retrace your steps back to the parking area on Tooley Pond Road. Look below for a few pictures and a trail map of this great short hike.
