This is an off-trail hike from the Children's Forest to the top of Slide Peak. Slide Peak is actually on Snow Valley Ski Resort property and can only be done in their off season (and with permission if anyone is around to give it at the resort). Great hike for kids as well. Views are amazing as you pass 3 little lakes on your way to the peak. Start on the National Children's Forest Trail to the 1st little lake. Follow the lake path to the east where you will find the trail head. Follow this trail/dirt road past two more smaller lakes all the way to the ski lifts and up the road to the peak.
