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."
