Description

From the Pinkham Notch visitors center, near the exit of the Sherburne Trail, follow trail signs to the Gulf Of Slides Trail.

This trail is a bit longer and harder than the Sherbie, you will need to cross a few rivers, especially in early season.

The biggest of these crossings is at the very bottom.

When ascending, keep your eyes on the woods to lookers left for a short cut.

This skirts a few switchbacks on a somewhat unofficial trail, keep in mind you can not ski back down this way.

Follow the trail until you cross a large drainage, this will give you your first view of GOS, in a zone called, The Fingers.

to get to the main gullies, continue be up the trail.

There is a small rescue cache, then the trail terminates right below, Gully #1.

You can ski down from here, or do some exploring in the high alpine of Gulf Of Slides.

The ski down is very exciting and a little more dynamic than the Sherbie.
