Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful fall day today-sunny and 65 with leaves at peak color. This was a wicked long hike, but the views were well worth it. Started at Woodland Valley State Campground and hiked the loop counter-clockwise over Slide, Cornell and Wittenberg. Took Phoenicia-East Branch, Curtis-Ormbee and Burroughs Range Trails to Slide summit.
