In July 2014, the state opened an official 3 mile trail to OK Slip Falls, part of the recently established Hudson Gorge Wilderness. After hearing so many good things about the falls, Evan and I decided to check out the trail for ourselves. On a cool and overcast day we layered up headed out from the parking area on Route 28, about 0.2 miles down the road from the trailhead.
From the trailhead, we followed an older trail en route for Ross, Whortleberry, and Big Bad Luck ponds. After about 0.6 miles and off of the existing trail toward the ponds, a new and marked trail splits off to the right. The path is smooth and gently undulating with only a few slightly steep areas. OK Slip Falls, one of the tallest cascades in the Adirondacks, is reached about 2.4 miles after the split. The trail ends with a couple scenic overlooks that offer great views of the falls.
