Beaver Brook Trail to Mount Moosilauke ist ein 7.6 Meilen langer, stark besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von North Woodstock, New Hampshire. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt einen Wasserfall und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist am besten von März bis Oktober zugänglich.

Very steep and icy for first 2 miles. A little after the hut it levels out for a while. I would say the actual distance from parking lot to summit is closer to 4.4 miles. The last 0.2 to summit was very exposed and windy. Having goggles for that last push would have been great. Trail was easy to follow although you had to make a few detours, especially on way down, because of ice. Saw 20 people mostly on their way down as I was heading up. Took 3:15 to get to summit with a few breaks. 2:20 to get back.

If you know what your doing, it’s a workout but you can do this trail in November. Some black ice/mud can make scrambles slippery, especially when descending. Poles or a walking stick is recommended.

Challenging trail, very steep the 1.5 miles. Beautiful waterfalls.

Had a nice day for it. The section going up along the waterfalls is pretty immediate and extremely steep for the first 1.5m of the hike. I would consider Beaver Brook to be one of the harder ascents I have ever done in the Whites. Only saw 1 or 2 other people on this route - those i chatted with at the top all seemed to take Gorge Brook up. Once you get a bit past the shelter things start to ease up a bit and it is pretty easy going (incline-wise, the terrain is still very rocky) all the way over Mt. Blue and to Mt. Moosilauke. Some of my favorite views were overlooking the waterfalls back through the gap looking east. The colors were stunning!

Beautiful trail. Climbing along the waterfalls was difficult but scenic. The last quarter mile from treeline to summit was breathtaking. Descent was slow

Beautiful, challenging hike with rewarding waterfall & summit views. There is no warm up for this hike, very quickly the trail gets steep and stays steep for the next mile or so until it levels out a bit for the rest of the way. I'm in my 20's in average shape to below average shape, and the brook portion of the trail kicked my but on the way up and also on the way down. For a more avid hiker, this section of trail should be no problem but will likely still be a bit strenuous.

Yes, the first part of this trail is very steep and you need to be in shape but no different than what I have encountered on sections of other trails in the White Mountains. There are steps and rebar hand holds to help you up (and down) the gnarliest places. Really nothing that qualifies as vertigo inducing. The many waterfalls are amazing and are worth an out and back (up and down) even if it is not your goal to summit Moosilauke. Once you hit Beaver Brook shelter the grade begins to lessen and the final mile and a half to the summit is pretty easy. We did this hike on a clear October day, two days after a heavy rain. The waterfalls were all charged up and the 100 mile view from the meadow-like top of Moosilauke was a peak(!) experience. I am 66 years old and blessed that I can still do a hard hike like this. We did go very slowly down the steep section. Poles are helpful but I very frequently transferred my poles to one hand so I could grab onto a tree with the other.

If you are out of shape or a novice this trail is not for you . But any good hiker will enjoy this amazing trail . The first mile is steep with one waterfall after another !

I loved this trail it was challenging and absolutely beautiful. The most difficult areas in the first 1.6 miles were alongside beautiful waterfall cascades. I'm glad I didnt get scared off from the reviews. The day we decided to go on this hike it had been raining that morning and the day before. Many reviews said don't go in wet conditions its too dangerous. I found that with good quality hiking boots and using three or four points of contact at particularly steep bits, an experienced hiker in good shape will have a great hike without too much danger. I prefer no poles and a camel back for water on a trail like this because I like to use my hands for the scrambles and obstacles. I did feel a bit of leg and joint fatigue on the way down but I just kept a good pase and focused on making my steps count. We had no view at the top in early October, the conditions were blustery with high speed winds and thick layer of frost over everything. I'm glad I had a windbreaker jacket and a scarf to cover my ears and face for protection.

Beautiful hike on a dry day - would NOT recommend doing this on a day after recent rain. Very steep the first 2 miles, lots of rocks (large slabs and small loose rocks), but once you get past the rocks it’s not too bad. Long sections of rocky uphill, only to take a turn and think you’re at the top but you aren’t. The waterfall makes the trail very muddy at points. The views at the summit on a clear day is outstanding. Leaves are just starting to turn. We started a little after 11 and took 2.5 hrs going up and 2 hrs coming down. The downclimb is a knee-killer from the summit. If possible, definitely have two cars and climb up this trail but come down either on Carriage Rd or Gorge Brook Trail to the Ravine Lodge. It’ll be kinder on the knees.

If you are not well conditioned take a different trail to the summit. Nice waterfalls along and beautiful views. Good for backpacking

Absolutely loved this hike! The views were breathtaking. It was challenging, but with the waterfalls and other unique scenery it was so worth it. I recommend you take your time descending it is even trickier on the way down.

One of the nicer hikes in WM. 360* views from the top are simple awesome. Initial part of the hike is very steep so I would not say it is for first timers. Also the section can be tricky while coming down. As many have already mentioned, total distance to top and back is more like 8 miles than 6.3 miles described in the information pane....
