Moose Mountain Trail

Moose Mountain Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Moose Mountain is aptly named. The entire trail is prime moose habitat, with numerous swampy areas to the sides of the trail, although the trail itself is generally dry, soft dirt. Fresh moose tracks are virtually guaranteed, and moose sightings are common on the Moose Mountain Trail, part of the Appalachian Trail.

The route is double-blazed, with both the standard white marking for the Appalachian Trail and orange blazes with a black stripe, the historical Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) marking. Although there is no leash law, your dog will definitely pick up a moose or deer scent at some point on this hike, so it is best to keep him on a leash if he has a propensity for tracking hoofed animals."

Was not totally impressed with the trail. First the trail head is right off the road and the parking lot which is somewhat hidden is across the road from it. There is a larger parking lot (and I mean like 5 cars can fit) little further down and you can access the trail but the signage I thought was bad. But not really much at the top. Wyler had fun and chased I think some animals but no moose were seen (little disappointing given its name).
