Ascent Trip Report

Fantastic hike up Slide from Denning Parking Area via Curtis-Ormsbee Trail. Perfect weather - could see for miles from views near summit. First time on Curtis-Ormsbee Trail - well worth working into any hike in that area. Trail conditions much better than in early Sept. - all blow-down from Irene and Lee was off trails and to the side. Thank you to those who cleared out the trails!
