A nice glade with easy access and a waterfall at the bottom.

Gunks Jesse

Need to Know

There are lots of hidden rocks in the area and also a few cliffs. Be careful to know your line so as to avoid cliffs as the Gunks rarely get enough snow to make a cliff drop doable.

Description

With easy access from multiple directions and a consistent 22 degree pitch, this line will leave you wanting more. This is a northwestern facing slope, and snow tends to accumulate and stay late into the spring. When the rest of the Gunks have gone through a freeze-thaw cycle, this is often still soft and fresh as it stays cooler and doesn't get baked by the sun.

Pick a point along the Trapps Upper Carriage Road, and drop in. It is better to drop past a quarter mile or so down the upper carriage road. Otherwise you'll end up at a largish creek. There is a small trail that leads back out to the Split Rock falls. You'll want to keep this trail on your left to hit a traverse that will take you back to a bridge. This will all make sense once you are there skiing it.
