Mount Moosilauke Trail

Various • 11 mi • 2750 ft

Standing prominently over the Connecticut River Valley, 4802-foot Mount Moosilauke is the highest mountain in western New Hampshire. Beginning as early as 1685, when Abenaki Chief Waternomee was believed to have stood upon its summit, this mountain has lured us to its flowing ridges and deep ravines. Dartmouth College faithful have long visited its heights in search of outdoor adventure. And with numerous routes leading to the peak Native Americans once called the “Bald Place,” Mount Moosilauke continues to be a popular destination for hikers today. Well before you reach the top to gaze upon the expansive views or enjoy its invigorating winds, you will come to understand why so many before you have been attracted to Mount Moosilauke.

Beautiful hike! We took the long route and didn't see a single person for the first 4 miles. The trail up was amazing, it followed a creek for quite a while and then we were in pine forests. The trail down was very steep (we took the Carriage trail and then Snapper trail)and rocky. Overall, a great hike!
