DescriptionBig Slide Mtn. is the 27th highest mountain in New York State. Its summit offers fantastic views of Gothics and the lower range. The mountain gets its name from a huge slab (300-400ft?) on its south face.
The old guidebook only lists 4 routes (5.5-5.9) on this slab, by now there is probably more.
Getting ThereBig Slide Mtn. is best approached from the Garden trailhead in Keene Valley. You could take the Big Slide trail through the valley, but the more scenic approach would be to use the brothers trail which follows a ridge of rocky outcrops. After following the brothers trail for approximately 4mi, it will connect with the Big Slide trail. At this junction, follow a faint path/bushwhack west to the base of the slab.
