Comments
Comments: I've done Eastman many times in the past, but always from the Evans Notch side. I decided to try it from the Jackson side and what a gem. The first 2 miles are basically flat on a logging road (with some higher grass). At a large clearing there is a small arrow sign pointing to the left (the sign is on a small pile of rocks near the ground (post is broken) with some flagging). Easy to miss if you're not paying attention because the logging road continues. After about 1/4 mile, another arrow pointing right. Easy hike up to the jct of Eastman Mountain Trail. No steeps and mostly a well padded footpath. Nice easy alternative to get to Eastman. Nice talking with Shaun and Nick at the top.
