This is NOT a 5.6 mile hike. 3.8 miles up and 3.8 miles down. Also trails not marked well so make sure you read the signs or you will be going down the wrong way and have to hike all the way back up. Make sure to fill up water at the brook as there is no water past it. Otherwise a pretty hike.

Difficult but worth it! Hiked with six fourteen y/os from a sleep away camp and they loved every minute of it. Hiked to beaver brook shelter (1.5 miles in 2 hours), spent the night, then summitted and descended in about five hours total (6.1 miles).

The way we climbed it was a very easy and quick hike overall. First we went up Snapper which added the steepness to it. But then that joined with the Carriage Trail taking us to the top. That was what you expected. Moderate steepness with some rocks in the path. So in the end we were up and back fairy quickly. I would have liked to seen the spectacular view everyone told me about but unfortunately it was thundering, cloudy, cold, and windy so ate a quick lunch and headed back down.
Wyler, my dog, had no problems with the trail

I did this hike a couple of weeks ago. It is fairly challenging. This was my 14th 4,000 footers. I have terrible endurance, so take that as you will. It was a gorgeous hike all along cascades for the first couple of miles. The water was a welcome iced cold face bath occasionally and the wind would bring that cool breeze that water does along with it. There are wood block steps and some iron rungs along the really tricky parts. Once on top of Moosilauke it was cold as hell. It's completely exposed so the view is tremendous, but any sort of wind would we freezing. We went from what felt like 80 degree tropical weather while hiking to 40 degrees on the summit. Definitely spring like.
I would highly recommend this trail. It's awesome.

The waterfalls were amazing. The foliage at lower elevations was still amazing. The views from higher up were amazing. I loved this one but it is certainly a days work. I want to do this one again next year if I can come back to New Hampshire.

We took the Beaver Brook Trail up to the summit and it was a great hike! The first 2 miles are pretty steep and challenging, but with wooden steps and rebar for help. You follow a waterfall/river for quite a ways until it finally starts to level off around 2.0 miles up. Coming down was also fairly tricky, with the steepness of the trail, but it was so much fun. The view at the top is amazing, and well worth the time it takes on the Beaver Brook Trail. There are a few signs cautioning inexperienced hikers to avoid this trail, so if you are a beginner, seek an alternate route! If are you looking for a challenging and rewarding hike, this is it!

I went on the Beaver Brook Trail which is the 7.6 miles from the woodstock nh side next to the beaver brook lake. It is the appliation trail and has the beaver brook shelter and also maintained by Dartmouth College. It has some rebar to help you and also wooden stairs up some of the rocks. It was a little wet, but the waterfall for over a mile was amazing. It took about 6:15 hours

One of my favorite hikes. Great views and a nice walk along the ridge but with some protection from high winds.

Fairly easy hike for the distance. Very dog-friendly. Great views. Really a fun, worthwhile hike. Summit was cloud-free and a little chilly for early July but it was a nice break from the heat on the way up.

Day we went was nice at start, but very foggy, cold, and deep snow near summit. Turned back due to limited visability
