Hike: Water Falls and Summits Tomorrow Sunday
Last Minute Posting.....
Seeing the weather is looking good for tomorrow and this is last minute I will organize a group of adventurists to hike the Mt Moosilauke, Via the Beaver Brook Trail... Then travel along the ridge following the "AT" past the summit to a dropped car at Route 25... Its will be a great trip starts off with following waterfalls up the side of the mountain and there is interesting Ladders and hiking challenges may have some wet trails but weather is looking good come on out...
Overview of Attractions
- The Summit
- 360 degree view, 100 acres of alpine tundra, ruins of Summit Camp and two Summit Cabins.
- Beaver Brook Cascades
- Some of the finest cascades in the region.
- South Peak
- Less frequented than the main summit, great views of Warren NH nearly 4000 feet below.
- Jobildunc Ravine
- Spectacular glacial cirque. Difficult bushwhack access to base, good views of headwalls from Gorge Brook, Upper Beaver Brook, and particularly from viewpoint on Al Merrill Ski Loop.
- Little Tunnel Ravine
- Another glacial cirque; northeast of the Benton Trail. Numerous cascades and good views into ravine from Benton Trail.
- Ravine Lodge area
- Unique, historic log building.
The above are the obvious high points, but they are only a beginning to the adventures possible. Within this thirty square mile mountain region are miles of idyllic streams, old logging roads, rock slides, subsidiary summits, and intriguing woods to explore. Subject to your route-finding and map-reading ability, the possibilities are endless.

Trip Planning & Research:
I did my research using the Appalachian Mountain Club's "White Mountain Guide", trail maps, and the Internet. You need to become self-reliant by becoming familiar with the route, terrain, and potential hazards since you are ultimately responsible for your own safety.
