If wishing to do the eagle slide expect a challenging bushwack if you try to make a short cut through the woods. The forest is unbelievably thick in parts and super slow to get through. Watch out for rain, the slide is slippery and potentialy dangerous when wet ! Great views from top !
When you hit the trail at the top it is the common trail for both ADK (DEC) trails #47 and #48, they split about 1/2 mile later Sep 6, 2010
