1931 AMC White Mountain Guide|
South Baldface and Mt. Eastman may be reached by this trail [Slippery Brook Trail] as it passes through the col between then, and this is doubtless the easiest approach to either from the S.E. But the col is full of “jackstraws” and small growth, and there is no trail to either peak. Hence, though the distances without trail are insignificant, the tramper should be provided with a vocabulary equal to the occasion.

The Baldface Knob Trail continues N. from this same point. Distance 4.3 m.

Mounts Sable (3,540.), Chandler (3,330 ft.) and Eastman (2,936 ft.)
The former trails over the summits of these three mountains have been abandoned. Mt. Eastman summit may be approached by the Slippery Brook and Bradley Brook Trails.
1963 AMC White Mountain Guide
For experienced trampers, a bushwhack of about 15 min., in a generally S direction, will take one to the lower (southern) summit along the old abandoned section of the former trail which ascended the mountain from the S side. This secondary summit is partially wooded, but has good outlooks in several directions.
