Loop Hike that starts at the main parking lot near Slide Mountain, Instead of going straight up to Slide, started hiking on 47 towards the next trail head parking lot that is near a sharp bend. Then followed the blazes around Slide Mountain Wilderness which lead back to the Slide Mountain Parking.

I think everyone is reviewing different trails. The Map included here involves a multi-peak bushwhack that connects Cornel Mt. to the Peakamoose Trail. From Cornel there is no clear trail on the map or evident in person. I did not do that trail. I followed the loop most people are discussing that follows the red blazed trail that hits slide, Cornel, and Wittenberg, and comes back past the spur for Giant Ledge. Is there a moderator that can address what trail this is supposed to be?

This entire area is amazing, but finding the route after Cornell mountain is pretty much impossible. It's a bushwack to connect with the next trail when you turn South. Area has lots of poison oak so I just avoided entirely.

Other than that, highly highly recommend this hike.

Nice long hike over 9 miles . Starts by a creek and goes up quickly . Then it's about a 4 mile walk through forests and edges until you reach a split point, where you my continue to wittenberg and cornell from there or go left by Terrace Mountain and explore a bushwhacked trail
