A mountain owned by Dartmouth....interesting.
I guess I need to look for this mountain the next time I drive up this way. Nice looking page and perhaps a good place to see a moose!
It's funny you mention about moose. This was the first time I did Mt. Moosilauke and South Peak and driving back on 118 my girlfriend and I saw a moose! The funny thing was that it was at 2:30 in the afternoon which I thought was kind of an odd time for moose to be out since it was broad daylight. It was pretty cool though! Anyways, thanks so much for your kind words and vote and you take care! Happy trails!
Though old maps include many spellings including "moos hillock", my favorite explanation for the name is that it comes from an Indian phrase meaning "bald place"
Good page and nice mountain in the western Whites. I looked at the Topozone Map. Would it be possible to do a ridge traverse that linked South Peak, Mt. Moosilauke, Mt. Blue, Mt. Jim, and Mt. Waternomee in one day with two cars?
First of all thanks so much for your kind words and vote. To answer your question, yes, it is definitely possible. To do a ridge traverse by taking the Snapper Trail to the Carriage Road and down the Beaver Brook Trail, or vice versa, the distance would be 7.8 miles. You could actually do an out and back if you wanted too and still get a reasonable round-trip distance between ten and fourteen miles. I hope I have answered your question, if not, let me know. Thanks again so much and you take care! Happy Trails!
Nice page! Looks like you had a good day
Thanks so very much. We did have a gorgeous day even though at the outset we weren't sure. This will probably be my most memorable day ever in the whites. I just loved this group of mountains. Thanks again and happy trails!
Good stuff, as usual.
Thanks so much for your kind comments and vote! Take care!
With only about eighty feet of prominence and its principal route already described on the Moosilauke page, this wasn't on my list of subpeaks that might need their own pages. But the peak does have about a mile of separation and the page is well done. Besides, I can't complain since I recently put up Mt Lethe & North Carter.
Hey thanks buddy! Have a good one!
Thanks so much as always Dean! Take care!
Thank you very much Joseph! Happy trails!
Thanks so much Alan!
