This is in the Adirondack Mountain Reserve, you need a reservation to park at the trailhead. It is a stunningly beautiful hike along the East Branch of the Ausable River. There are many choices of trails, we like to make a circuit by taking the West River trail to the falls and the East River Trail back. The link is for the Indian Head Trail, but if you turn right at the #2 you can pick up the West River Trail. The rangers are very helpful and will direct you. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/new-york/indian-head-and-rainbow-falls?ref=result-card

We enjoyed this trail, you get a great view of the falls. There is little elevation change so it isn't strenuous. We do NOT recommend attempting the unofficial part of the trail down to the base of the falls, it is very dangerous. We DO recommend taking the trail to the Hudson River via the top of the falls. It's beautiful and fun (although a little steep in sections). https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/new-york/ok-slip-falls-trail

This is a hike of the Nun-Da-Ga-O Ridge, it is a herd trail (unmarked) so we recommend downloading a trail map so you can use the gps signal to help you stay on track. The loop goes along a wonderful ridge that stretches from Big Crow to Weston Mountain, with many view points looking south to the High Peaks or West to WhiteFace. It is a moderately challenging trail, but worth the effort. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/new-york/big-crow-and-nun-da-ga-o-ridge-loop-trail
