Route: Slippery Brook Trail, Mt. Eastman Trail, (Eastman Mountain), Mt. Eastman Trail, Slippery Brook Trail

The Slippery Brook forest road portion was fast hiking. Reaching the actual hiking trail portion, progress slowed a bit due to some slippery roots and rocks. Further up, the trail was rather vague as it passed through grown in quasi-meadows. Overall, the grades were generally easy all the way up to the height of land. The Mt. Eastman Trail had or two steep sections as it climbed up to the somewhat ledgy summit, from where there were good views and excellent blueberries.
