I know you're kind of new to this and have described yourself as a slow hiker, but this is an excellent day trip. It may be long mileage wise, but definitely doable.

The hardest part of the Kate Sleeper Trail is when you first get off the South Slide and you immediately come to another slide. You have to descend about 100'. From there it is a little rough for another 100' or so, then turns into an easy trail. As long as you have good weather this should be a very enjoyable hike. Be sure to visit East Sleeper on the NH 100 Highest List. It's only about 1/10th mile easy hike off the KS Trail.

Enjoy!

NO water after about the 1/2 way point on Pine Bend Brook Trail until well along the Mcrillis Trail. Plan on slogging plenty with you, and if you do draw from a stream, be sure to filter it or use iodine tabs. Believe me, you don't want Giardia. I know.

I should add that West Sleeper is on the list of New Hampshire 100 Highest as well, though it requires a 30 yard bushwhack off the Kate Sleeper Trail to reach the actual summit. Tough if you don't know where to look. A lot easier to find East Sleeper summit.

There is more here about the 4000 Footer Club if you're interested:
