Hidden in a deep ravine between Blueberry Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain, Bickford Brook travels downstream towards its confluence with the Cold River. Along the way, hundreds of feet of cascades and slides adorn the brook, most accessible by connecting a few popular hiking trails.
The first slides of the trail, appropriately named lower slides, are reached just after your first contact with the brook. This slide is about 50 feet in height, and composed of cascades, slides, and delightful water chutes. Forget about exploring the lower slides; the sheer flume walls are very dangerous and too slippery to safely navigate.
A 40-foot tall, medium-angle slide, with a clear dark green dark, attractive pool found beneath the slide. Set in a heavily-shaded glen, the upper slide has very low water throughout most of the year. Although the area is remote and access can be confusing, the pool, with its depths up to 5 feet, receives moderate use. As the cold river waters warm up, visitors with swim shorts and towels can often be seen making their way to the upper slide.
