I started at the Marston Loop trailr head near slide dam on the Park Tote Road in Baxter State Park. At one. 3 miles I d to the left towards North Brother Mountain until the side Trail for North brother. I took the side trail to the summit of North Brother. Footing was great and trails were beautiful until the last little bit before the north brother summit were the rock scrambling was pretty tough. After coming back down the north brother side trail I continued towards the south brother side trail. The trail was quick and easy and again on the south brother side trail to the summit there was some challenging rock scrambling. I returned from the south brother side trail back to the Marston loop trail and continued Overmount go. After somebody Mount call  I went down the slide. 1 mile took me over 48 minutes going down the slide. It was rather wet and slippery and felt like a death trap. After getting past the slide it was an easy trail back to the parking area where I started. No one accompanied me and I brought all my own supplies.
