Moosalamoo is an Abenaki term that loosely translated means “he trails the moose” or “the moose departs.” It was the original name of Lake Dunmore, then the mountain, and now the entire 22,000-acre region. Hike to a dramatic cliff above Lake Dunmore, then through a peaceful upland forest to a modest view at the summit and a wild blueberry feast. It sees little foot traffic, is fairly smooth, and is not very steep above the cliffs, which makes for a pleasant walk through airy woods.
