OK Slip Falls

Indian Lake, NY


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.

Wow what an amazing view. The hike was absolutely long as hell but the view WAS AMAZING! Here is a little video I put together from the hike feel free to check it out!

This trail is not for novices, it is difficult and very long, not a nice walk to see the falls. While the falls are beautiful and awesome to be in the middle of the wilderness, those that have seen other falls will not be that impressed given the effort to get there. Trek took us 2.5 hours from parking area to the falls. Trail was muddy. Trail is for the real hikers, not the tourist.
