Beaver Brook Trail  Sucess!

Despite the warnings about the steep and slippery climb along the cascades, I attempted the trail with arthritic knees. I made it slow and steady, especially slow on the way down but so worth it. Had amazing weather and terrific 360 degree views from the summit which was somewhat crowded and chilly. The trail was empty for the most part but muddy, and covered with wet leaves making the steps and rocks a bit of a challenge. The cascades were quite full considering the lateness in the year. Colors are changing and that added to the beauty of this trail. I did run into one late nobo and a few others who realized this was steeper than expected. One tip: give yourself plenty of time to descend given the challenge and shorter days ahead. I would climb it again using a different trail but feel accomplished having done Beaver Brook successfully! This slow poke took 3 hours to summit and 4 hours to descend, others could do it much faster.

scary weather  Sucess!

Went up/down Beaver Brook Trail. Beautiful cascades up the first and only steep tough section of the trail. Weather forecast called for .1 in. of rain. Endured marble sized hail twice, 3 thunder and lighning cells, and over an in. of rain. Helped get another hikers dog back down after steeps got wet and slippery, don't know if the dog's owner was ignorant or was trying to do it in on the hike (the steeps weren't going to be safe for the dog even in dry conditions, and we met another party with a dog at the shelter! Fun hike, nice views, even saw the white booties of a moose near the spring water source.

first clear day in the white mountains  Sucess!

Been to the White mountains several times, but this was the first blue sky I'd seen there. Great views all around.

Gorge Brooke Trail  Sucess!

We had all rain and no view, but the heather meadow on the summit was beautiful to behold.

the views were not exagerrated  Sucess!

Definitely one of the best mtns in New England for views from the top. One hundred and ten minutes up the Beaver Brook trail to the summit in great weather. The park ranger said the wildflowers in July are spectacular at the summit area.

Route Climbed: Glencliff-Carriage-Gorge Brook-Hurricane  Sucess!

Took one of the longer routes around the mountain. Was very tough on the knees and feet by the end. Would not recommend the uneventful Hurricane Trail going down. We hiked right as the snow started accumulating on the mountain in mid-October. Weather was lousy, and we had no views. Will definitely revisit it on a clearer day.

Gorge Brook Trail   Sucess!

Lots of wind at the top, not much snow or very many views but the river was beautiful.

Gorge Brook Trail  Sucess!

First true summit in the quest for the 48 4000 footers (unknowingly missed Whiteface's actual summit) was awesome. It was very warm at the trailhead (55-60 degrees), and by the time we reached the summit, it was below freezing with some light snow and ice on the ground.

Winter Hike?  Sucess!

Have hiked Moosilauke several times in the summer and am now planning my first winter hike this November. Can anyone provide any tips/advice? Thanks

First Solo trip  Sucess!

My first solo hike of any significant length. The forecast was 100F in Boston, so I headed to the mountains. Good choice, it never got over 75F the entire hike! I started and ended at the Darmouth College Lodge - lovely place!! Headed up Gorge Trail to the Summit, then over the carriage road towards the South Peak (via a spur trail), and finally back to the lodge via Snapper Trail. Besides some extra mileage due to missed trail intersections, everything went really well! Did the loop in about 5.5 hrs, including the extra one hour hike due to the two missed trails... There were good views in all directions, despite the looming clouds above. There was a threat of thunderstorms but I never saw one. Barely met any people on the trails, and only a few at the Moosilauke summit, nobody at all at the South Peak.
