    Default No!

    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!

    Default Water?

    "whats the water supply like out there ?"

    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.

    Default More...

    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:

Not only are you gunna hit the tri- pyramids, you also have Whiteface which make 4 -4,000 footers, and then east and west sleeper which are both 3,800+ footers LOL. I guess I will have to get the massage oil ready, because you are going to need a deep tissue massage by the time I pick you up!! LOL
