technicolorNHScorching day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2017


Two hours and forty minutes to the top from the Garden parking lot. Excellent views and a pine marten on the summit begging for snacks. It was a fine open slab climb uphill for quite a while, and overall the trail looks normally dry after the snow melts. Two hours and six minutes to descend.

Great mountain but very crowded on warm weekends. Can't wait to do it in winter.

gladiola92Lost my Camera  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2013
We climbed Big Slide on 9/28/13 - beautiful day, however I lost my Canon digital camera. Stopped to get something out of my pack and left it on a rock near the beginning of the trail to the Brothers, near the Garden parking lot. Realized I left it behind 10 minutes later and went back to retrieve it but someone had already taken it. If you found my camera could you please call me at 518-424-5866. I'm really missing it - it was a gift from my sons. Thank you!

Big Slide was considered an okay High Peak to attempt during mud season. Dan and I got this one together.

OnagerBig Slide Mtn.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2013


Summited Big Slide Mtn. 4199' on a beautiful spring day. We parked at the Garden trailhead in Keene and hiked over the Brothers to get to the summit of Big Slide. The hike was pretty gradual, with some iced over sections in the shady areas, but otherwise the trail was much drier than I thought it would be for mud season. An easy mountain and a great day hike to stay in shape.

Great view of the great range, we were fortunate to have a sunny and clear day. Saw a pine marten at the summit, it wasn't afraid of humans whatsoever.

One of the most picturesque hikes in the whole of the park. Views of distant peaks and the valley are stunning. Plenty of black flies though :(

CRiedel2Early Spring Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2012


Hiked up Big slide from the garden parking lot. Great day and a very scenic hike up The Brothers and from the summit. Did need my Stabilicers about half way up because of the ice on the trail still. But temps around 70f made it an awesome day.

Nice day hike over the Brothers. Summit was in a cloud but the views from the Brothers at least were great.

Lovely hike coming up over the Brothers. I thought the view from the Brothers was actually better than that on Big Slide.

Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Second day of a 2 days-hike. Slept at the garden the night before. We proceeded to JBL to drop our pack. We then climbed Upper Wolf Jaw, Armstrong and Gothics. We were back to the tentsite at 7PM.

Excellent view of the Great Range, and some good light fun scrambling on The Brothers. Right near the summit there's an awesome little shoot from the trail that looks way down the mountain. Easy day hike.
