Standing guard on North Conway’s western flank, Moat Mountain’s long ridgeline provides some of the finest views in the White Mountains. Sometimes overlooked by hikers seeking one of New Hampshire’s forty-eight 4000-foot summits, Moat Mountain rewards those whose primary quest is limitless natural beauty. The 3.3-mile excursion to the ridge’s two most southern promontories begins gradually, becomes more challenging, and slowly emerges atop barren rocks. An excellent hike throughout the year, the mountain’s southern exposure often allows exploration on snow-free spring terrain weeks before neighboring trails.
