Big Slide & The Brothers

Difficulty: Advanced

Elevation: 4,240 feet

Round-Trip Distance: 9.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 2,800 feet

Description: This is one of the best fall high peaks hikes you can do. The trail up The Brothers offers numerous views of the Johns Brook Valley and Great Range. The contrast between the maples and birches in the valley and the spruce-fir forest at high elevations can be stunning at peak foliage time. At other times of the year this hike is still very enjoyable. If you don't wish to do the full loop up Big Slide you can reach the First Brother 1.5 miles from the Garden Parking Area. If you do choose to do the entire loop it is worth taking a side trip to Johns Brook Lodge on your way out. They have cold beverages and snacks for sale from May through October and occassionaly have fresh homemade ice cream as well.
