Climbing Big Slide for our new Adirondacks tour

I spent last weekend with 2 friends climbing Big Slide. We were getting ready for our newest multi-sport Adirondack State Park tour next September. Here is Sheila and Stacey enjoying the view from the top.

Big Slide is the 27th highest of the 46 peaks above 4000' in the Adirondacks. We'll be offering it as the optional hike on our bike tour. It took the 3 of us 9 hours to go up and down. One of the best parts of the trail is that we top 3 smaller mountains, "The Three Brothers," each with wonderful views of their own along the way.

We carried our heavy snowshoes the whole way but never needed them. We (almost) guarantee that we won't have snow on our September tour next year!
