Mount Moosilauke Professional Review and Guide
"A steady climb to an expansive one-hundred-plus acres above tree line and a long 360-degree view, then a high alpine traverse and descent via a historic ski trail turned footpath. The Gorge Brook Trail is the shortest route to the summit from the Moosilauke.Mount Moosilauke is the westernmost 4,000-footer in the White Mountains and the dominant mountain along the upper Connecticut River Valley. It is also the spiritual center of the Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC), which maintains its trail network, as well as the 50-mile stretch of Appalachian Trail from Moosilauke to Hanover. It is a hulk of a peak with a sprawling open summit. At 4,802 feet, it is ranked tenth among the forty-eight peaks in New Hampshire over 4,000 feet. The first official ascent of Mount Moosilauke was by moose hunter Chase Whitcher in 1773."
