OK Slip Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in the Adirondacks featuring a 200 foot drop, was unable to be seen by the public until the land was purchased by the state in 2013. In 2014, an official trail to the falls was opened.

The trail to the waterfall is three miles long; with the walk from the parking area the roundtrip distance ends of being 6.4 miles. Although the hike isn't tremendously long, it can be difficult, and is known to be buggy and muddy as it's near some swampy areas. Bring bug spray and wear sturdy boots.

The parking area is located on Route 28, about 7.5 miles east of Indian Lake. The trailhead itself is on the north side of Route 28 and also provides access to Ross, Whortleberry, and Big Bad Luck Ponds. About a half mile from the trailhead hikers should turn right onto the trail for OK Slip Falls.
