Hike Mount Moosilauke via Gorge Brook Trail
Rate this Adventure New Hampshire › George Brook Trailhead
Added by Kelly Haugen
Mount Moosilauke will provide you with panoramic mountain views consisting of the White Mountain and Green Mountain ranges.
Mount Moosilauke is a 4000 footer located in the White Mountain Range of New Hampshire. The summit peaks at 4,802 feet with a prominence of 2,933 feet.
If you're new to exploring the White Mountain range this will definitely be a great introduction to what it can offer. The Gorge Brook Trail is the easiest and most common trail visitors will choose to hike.
George Brook Trail:
The trailhead is located off Ravine Rd. via NH-118. Right next to the trail you'll find the Dartmouth Moosilauke Ravine Lodge. Make sure to check it out! All visitors are welcome to eat, rest and even stay the night at the lodge.
Once on the trail, expect the total hike to take up to 5 hours round trip covering around 7.4 miles. Throughout most of your hike you'll predominately be in the cover of trees. Don't worry though as you'll be accompanied with the scenery of ravines, creeks and (closer to the summit) a couple glimpses of the mountain views to come. The trail itself is pretty gradual right until you near closer to the summit. After you hit the treeline keep trekking past the misleading false summit. Your final ascent to the summit is a short distance from here.
Note: Mount Moosilauke is a great hike you can do in the winter months for the experienced winter hiker. Be cautious of local weather conditions and make sure to prep your gear accordingly.
