Mount Moosilauke 2014-06-21

Out and back via Beaver Brook trail. First 1.5 miles is steep by any standard but the trail has been hardened to a degree that has no parallel in the Adirondacks. Rock slabs have steps either in the form of wood blocks cemented into place or flat spots drilled and carved into the slope. Boulders have been stacked to serves as staircases and iron rebar serves as handrails in key areas. There was only one slightly muddy spot on the entire trail. We're definitely not in the Adirondacks, Toto!
  • Cool day with many clouds; no bugs except upon our return to the trail-head.
  • Beaver Brook Cascades looks like a great spot to return to on a steaming hot day.
  • Moosilauke's open summit offers spectacular views of the surrounding peaks. 
  • It was a busy day and it appears most hikers arrived by way of the Ridge and Gorge trails.
  • First trip back to New Hampshire this year and I hope to do many more this summer.

See all photos.
