Overview

Join us for a winter hike up Mt. Moosilauke, with its stunning views of the White Mountains ranges and southern valleys. This out-and-back hike will take us about 8 miles (rt) on the Glencliff Trail (AT), over the open summit of South Peak and continuing to the main summit at 4,802'. The summit is above-treeline and very exposed, so appropriate above-treeline gear is required. We'll hike at a steady pace climbing approximately 3,300' of elevation. We expect this hike will take between 6-8 hours with breaks, weather permitting of course. If we get a bluebird day, this will be a beautiful hike up a New England Classic. This trip is only suitable for fit and experienced winter hikers who have above treeline experience and have hiked a few times with similar mileage/elevation in the months preceding the trip. You'll need full winter gear including insulated boots, crampons, snowshoes and full face protection. Ice axes are recommended. Please describe your experience and gear when registering.
