Mount Moosilauke, at 4,802 feet, is the western-most 4,000-footer in NH. The alpine summit, on a clear day, affords hikers stunning views, to the east, of the Franconia Ridge and Presidentials, and to the west, the Green Mountains of Vermont and, in the distance, the Adirondacks in New York State.
Moderate: The Gorge Brook Trail offers a long yet moderate climb to the summit, offering views of the Franconia Ridge to hikers as they approach the top.
Strenuous: The Beaver Brook Trail is a difficult route to Moosilauke’s summit due to extremely steep and rough trail conditions around the Beaver Brook Cascades. The Appalachian Trail follows the Beaver Brook Trail to Kinsman Notch. Note: This trail may be extremely dangerous in icy conditions.
