BETA PHOTO: Abel and Ethan's Slabs - by Webster Cliff Trai...


These two small slabs are located roughly across the Saco River from the spur road that leads to the Frankenstein Cliff/Arethusa Falls Road.

The slabs are named after Ethan and Abel Crawford, early inhabitants of Crawford Notch.

The slabs are visible from the Route 302 and are in Webster's 2nd edition guidebook.

Getting There 

Cross the Saco River via the Webster Cliff Trail footbridge, then bushwhack up and left to the slabs. The approach takes 15-20 minutes.
