WHP Participants ONLY: Moosilauke via Gorge Brook Day Hike (Level 2)

Trip dates: Saturday, February 1, 2020 12:00 AM

This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to registered participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at whp19@hb.amcboston.org or follow the link below.
Join us for a moderately paced day hike to the above treeline summit of Mount Moosilauke, where we'll have a chance to use the gear and apply the skills we've been covering in the program. You will be introduced to one of the true joys of winter hiking on this hike - the road walk. We will take the Gorge Brook trail as it is the easiest and most sheltered from wind route to the summit. However, as the Ravine Lodge road is not always plowed in winter, this can add an additional 3.2 miles round trip as well as an additional 400 feet of elevation gain. Distance: The trail itself is only 7.4 miles roundtrip with 2,400 feet of elevation gain, but factoring in the road walk our total mileage will be 10.6 miles with 2,800 feet of elevation gain.
