Big Slide via The Brothers

In The Lake Placid and High Peaks Region
The Garden Parking Lot is a very popular spot for hikers to start off their hikes. The Big Slide via The Brothers Trail starts here and you have access to several hikes from The Garden including: Johns Brook Lodge, Mt Marcy, Mt Haystack, Saddleback Mtn, Gothics, Armstrong and the Wolfjaws.

Remember that there is no parking on Interbrook Road, and if you do your car will be towed. At several points the road is only one car width wide so parking on the road would not allow other cars to pass.

Keene Valley, NY 12943

Directions:The trail head is located on Interbrook Road, also known as Johns Brook Road, in the famous Garden Parking Lot. There is no parking on Interbrook Road at all and the Garden Parking Lot is a very busy parking lot, so be prepared to come early to get a parking spot.
