  • We really enjoyed our 9.5 mile hike up Mt. Moosilauke. It was challenging and rewarding with beautiful views at the summit. We hiked on a Friday so crowds weren’t too bad. Narrow trails in spots...  more »
  • Both gentle and very challenging trails cover this mountain. It is a full day hike to get to the top, but if you want something gentler, there are great, easy hiking trails that go along the creeks.....  more »
  • Great hike. Difficult but not too hard. Very rewarding summit, would recommend.
  • Not a super aggressive 4800footer nice and gradual, one of my favorites!
