A new trail has been built to Tenant Creek Falls from a new trailhead parking area on Hope Falls Road, 0.4 mile before the old trailhead.
The trail is located in the Wilcox Lake Wild Forest in the town of Hope, Hamilton County. The old trail across private land is now closed. Hikers must use the new trail to Tenant Creek Falls and not trespass on the private lands.
The new trail is 0.9 mile from the new trailhead to the falls. The trail was constructed by an Adirondack Mountain Club Volunteer High School Group under DEC contract and direction. An ADA accessible outhouse at the new trailhead was constructed by DEC Northville Operations staff.
Also, hikers using the East Stony Creek Trail must park at the new trailhead parking area on Hope Falls Road and walk the 0.4 mile on the road to reach the East Stony Creek Trailhead. It is 5.1 miles from the new trailhead to Wilcox Lake and 6.0 miles from the new trailhead to the Harrisburg Road Parking Area.
A new Tenant Creek Falls Trail Map is available here.
