With our new hike in- raft out expedition we’ve been spending a lot of time at OK Slip Falls and hiking all over the 2,800 acre OK Slip and Blue Ledge parcel. When you’re standing on the top of the falls you’re looking north east. Across the river, Kettle Mountain which has a steep and rocky top within view of the falls. That spot has been a target for a hiking destination since I first started spending time on the river.
I made a point to make this hike happen on May 22. We had a full day planned, the day began in Newcomb and we were traveling to North Creek for a total of 30 river miles. The reflections were crystal clear in the calm waters upstream. My mother Lucy, Lori Phoebe and I worked our way downstream enjoying all the natural beauty and pulled our raft over when it was time to find the view I have been so curious about.
Not only is the view of OK Slip Falls spectacular but looking east downstream at the whitewater and the beautiful wilderness is something to see. Another A+ special hike and raft combination trip! Contact us about hiking the Hudson River Gorge.
