Comments: Hike Downes Brook trail while water is low! Abandoned Slide trail has a new paper warning sign near the beginning. I saw no signs of unauthorized maintenance before I turned back (another day!) Mt. Potash has a great view of the Passaconaway Slide....which gets afternoon sun till 4pm in September
