Moat Mountain Trail

SCHWER 79 Bewertungen

Moat Mountain Trail ist ein 8 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Bartlett, 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 werden. Die Route ist am besten von Mai bis Oktober zugänglich. Hunde sind auf diesem Weg erlaubt.

Entfernung: 8.0 miles Höhenunterschied: 2,637 feet Routentyp: Hin & zurück

Nice trail. Well marked. Trailhead parking costs $5.00 unless you have the senior pass like me! From the trailhead to Diana's Baths, the trail is mostly level and wide. It stays that way for some time past Diana's, crossing streams 3 times. Turn left when you get to the Attitash Trail sign and prepare to climb. Not a bad climb actually. One or two places is steeper and rockier but these are relatively of short duration. Final ascent is steep and rocky. Perfect day. No breeze until you got to the top. Cold on top so I stayed long enough to take pictures and returned the same way. Beautiful views. Worth the hike. Washington in its white glory. Wished I had micro spikes for the upper portion of the trail. Only about 1 inch of snow cover but enough to cover all the icy spots. Only fell twice on the descent. Wish I had done the loop. Maybe next time. Didn't see a soul until I started down and then the crowds started coming up the trail. Lots of people down at Diana's.

wir sind den Red ridge trail zusammen mit dem Moat mountain trail gelaufen. in Summe ca. 15km. Richtung mit dem Uhrzeigersinn. würde ich auch empfehlen. anspruchsvoller Weg. stellenweise mussten wir etwas klettern - aber sehr wenig. für Hunde bedingt geeignet. gegebenenfalls muss der Hund ein Stück getragen werden. ansonsten sehr schöner weg und sehr gut gekennzeichnet. reine gehzeit ohne Pause 6:30h.

this trail was a very fun trail very little exposure to the sun until close to the north peak. this trail had a lot of good veiws and there was not a lot of tourists. I would only advise that this trail is not for beginners

Relatively unforgiving trail after the turn off of the river with ~1000 ft gain/mi for 2 mi. About halfway up you start to get some fun slabby sections and the views from the summit are a good payoff. Miles 6-8 are a bit of a slog. Incredibly buggy, as the hike is entirely below tree line. I forgot bug spray and ended up with about 30 mosquito bites. Bring poles...you'll want them on the way up and down.

Great trail! Shouldn’t have gone after a rain. Lots of exposed rock on this trail so super slippery! Great views on the way up and down. Bet the views at the top of both peaks are amazing. Nothing but fog today.

ok...as said read the good reviews...this is not a moderate trail in my opinion..maybe if you take the 1.8 mile trail flat as can be to start and then blend it with the 2.0 mile staircase you get moderate but I felt it was more to the hard..in any case most importantly do not attempt on a wet day or a day after a wet day..was very slippery a day after a drizzle...rocks were flat in areas and there was no traction..you could see where people were trying to create another trail in the dirt. the views were nice workout great...I was the only one up and down that day. saw a beautiful milk snake which I posted...all in all a good trail just listen to the advise on the other reviews...I did and was prepaid because of it...enjoy if you are thinking about doing after all you are in paradise....

Went up North Moat over to Middle Moat and ended on South. Got a little turned around, the trail markings aren’t the best from this route. I’m not so sure this is actually an 8 mile hike... Beautiful views, amazing day hike. I would not recommend this for a beginner - it’s not an easy trek. Lots of steep ledge on the way over to Middle but a breeze from there on out!

Fun hike but I would rate this towards the hard range. Easy at first then a solid 30-40 degree incline to the top. The map also is incorrect. This red trail line doesn’t take you to the summit. There is close to 20 minutes and 200 feet more of elevation to reach the summit at the end of the red line line. Great views. Might try to make this a loop hike next time instead of an out and back. The exposed rock near the top was really slippery going up and worst coming down. Being poles.. they were really helpful both ways.

Tip: open the map and scroll left to where North Moat Mountain is. That is where you’re going. Not sure who gets to decide which path is the “official” one for these trails, but if you stopped where the red line does you’d never get to any of the views. Actual hike as measured by my Fitbit was just under 10 miles. Not recommended for anyone with less-than-stellar knees. Shares a parking lot with Diana’s Baths so get there early if you want a space. Bring $5 in cash for the Day Use fee. After deviating from Diana’s Baths we didn’t see anybody for another 3 hours. Lots of exposed smooth rock, slippery when wet, which it was in spots. Wear boots and long pants, bring poles if you’ve got them, lots of water, and plenty of snacks. If you want to make the trip educational, bring a field guide on mushrooms. I’ve never seen so many, of so many different kinds, in one place. Incredibly beautiful environment, but definitely the high end of moderate, if not hard. Glad I did it, but my knees are telling me I won’t be doing it again.

Great hike with awesome views! Did counterclockwise loop up Moat Trail and down Red Ridge. Didn’t see anyone the entire time until I got back to Diana’s Bath.

Hiked this as an out/back from the parking lot to North Moat. The bottom 2+ is a walk in the park; the middle steps up the elevation gain, and the top 1/3 can be challenging, but the whole trip down will be challenging, if it’s wet, which it was. No other hikers were seen during the whole trip, due to less than perfect hiking weather.

This trail is definitely not a 7.9, but it is beautiful. I’m older so I couldn’t make it past 10 miles, but I’m sure anyone in better shape could do it. I’d have to say the uphill grade really makes this the high end of moderate, closer to hard. All in all, a fabulous day of hiking for us!

It started at Diana’s Bath, then became a nine mile hike. I loved every minute of it. Got some great pictures during the hike.

Hardest hike I’ve ever done but the view is worth it. I personally wouldn’t consider this moderate. Didn’t run into many people which made it even better.

Ran/fast packed this one. Awesome views. The 360 views at the peak are excellent. It is quite grueling. A lot of up in the middle miles.

Went from Diana’s Baths to top of North Moat and back - be careful this is a 10.7 mile round trip hike, not 7.9 as advertised. The 7.9 takes you to the bottom of where the steeps really start. Definitely worth the extra hour as the views are fantastic once you are at the actual top.

Great day to climb North moat today. Weather was warm but needed spikes or snow shoes to get through ice and snow. Beautiful view from the top. Worth to effort. Can't wait to try it again this summer.

Hikes on 10/06/2017 started up South Moat from Passaconaway Rd..at first it was raining and as I made South summit it stopped...the view was spectacular...I went on to Middle Moat which is a short distance...from there I continued to North Moat...the sign to North is a little confusing but stay left...after climbing some rock walls( not hard) I came to an amazing view of the Notches...caught a rainbow over them...the only thing I didn't like was the descend down North Moat...steep all the way until you come to Lucy Brook...overall...I would do it again....great hike
