Why choose a trail at East Sleeper, New Hampshire?

The Sleepers are two mountain peaks located in Grafton County, New Hampshire, part of the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains. The Sleepers are flanked to the northwest by Mount Tripyramid, to the northeast by Mount Passaconaway, and to the southeast by Mount Whiteface. They are named in honor of Katherine Sleeper, a local innkeeper who was heavily involved in trail development in the area. The Kate Sleeper Trail, which passes close by both the east and west peaks, is also named after her. The southwest side of the Sleepers drains into Slide Brook and Cascade Brook, both of which drain into Avalanche Brook, thence into the Mad River, Pemigewasset River, Merrimack River, and into the Gulf of Maine at Newburyport, Massachusetts. The northeast side of the Sleepers drains into Sabbaday Brook and Downes Brook, which both drain into the Swift River, thence into the Saco River, and into the Gulf of Maine at Saco, Maine. The south end of East Sleeper drains into the Whiteface River, thence into the Cold River, Bearcamp River, Ossipee River, and the Saco River. East Sleeper is on the Appalachian Mountain Club's list of the "Hundred Highest" peaks in New England. West Sleeper is actually higher still, but the ridge connecting it to South Tripyramid is high enough to deny it the 200 ft (61 m) of topographic prominence to qualify for the list. A maintained trail passes close by the summit, from which an obvious spur path leads to the top. The Sleepers stand in the middle of the Sandwich Range Wilderness.
