New Dartmouth Outing Club signs.
Fields of ferns.
There's an old slide in there somewhere.
This slide, which likely fell in the 1940s, is almost fully revegetated.
Still a little bit of open rock left.
And a nice view across the broad basin where Gorge Brook and the Baker River meet, with Moosilauke's Blue Ridge in the distance. Dartmouth College owns a sizeable chunk of wild land out here.
Heading across the steep slope to another old slide.
Descending through the woods alongside the slide.
Somewhere to the south of this slide I crossed the route of the legendary 1930s DOC ski trail, Hell's Highway, said to be the steepest in the East in its upper section, with a maximum pitch of 38 degrees. I wondered if this corridor was part of the trail's lower section.
