Parked at the bottom of Ravine Rd. and hiked about 1.6 miles to the Lodge/Start of Gorge Brook Trail. The gate is closed because of snow this time of year (early December) so plan for an extra 3.2 miles to your round trip totals. Great hike on a clear December day. 360 views into VT, NH, and ME! Checked out the spur trail to the South Peak and came down Snapper Trail. 5.5 hour hike-will be back!

Sunny day in the 80s perfect for the hike
Chris is correct, however the navigation from the app led me right to High Street which takes you up to Glencliff home for the elderly, there is a sign at the bottom of the road for the old folks home but nothing that says High Street. parking was just before the home complex on the right. very gentle snowshoeing Trail through the woods until you reach to the junction between the South Peak and Moosilaukes main summit, from that point it's less than one beautiful mile that exposes you too amazing views. follow the stone cairns to the main summit where 360 degree views can be seen. this was my first four thousand are doing winter picked a great day and was surprised how attainable the summit was. saw about 15 other people on the trail that day and several four legged friends.
""" the trail included in the map is not the glencliff trail.""" I did the hike today and followed the included map perfectly. It is the gorge brook trail to summit. You then follow the AT south "carriage road" and make a left on Sapper trail. That is the trail marked on the map. It's a great hike. Loved it.
