Overview

Join us for a hike to Mount Moriah, a beautiful peak in the northeastern corner of the White Mountains, NH. The vigorous out and back hike of this 4000 footer has nearly 360 degree views at the summit including the nearby Carters and Presidentials looking south, looking west into Vermont and towards the north to Mt Waumbek, Mt Cabot and the Mahoosuc Range into Maine. The hike via Stony Brook Trail is approx 9.5 miles out/back and has 3124' of elevation gain leading to its 4050' summit. Previous NH48 4000 footer hiking experience is required due to the length and elevation gain of the hike. Most of our hike will be below treeline, but we will have an exposed ridgeline and summit. You must be in good hiking condition with recent White Mountain 4k hiking experience and bring appropriate hiking gear. It is not unusual for winter's snow, ice and cold to remain at higher elevations in mid-May. To be prepared for this, your hiking gear must include: microspikes/Hillsounds, winter socks, gaitors, winter gloves/hat, a down jacket, hooded wind shell, etc. Participants will be asked about past hiking experience before acceptance. Our group will hike at a moderate pace (1.5 - 2 mph) and will be adjusted if needed to keep the group together. Additionally, all participants must abide by COVID-19 precautions. We will follow AMC COVID-19 requirements, which are consistent with local state guidelines. Participants will receive additional detailed information (including meeting location and time) via email approximately 2 weeks before the hike date.
