Mount Success via Appalachian Trail

SCHWER 37 Bewertungen

Mount Success via Appalachian Trail ist ein 6.5 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Berlin, New Hampshire. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden.

Awesome but challenging hike, especially on a wet day! There is a plane crash site about a mile away from the summit. Follow the trail past the summit to the orange blazes...look carefully so you don't miss them.

I believe this would have been amazing if it had been a warmer day; but November after a bad rain storm was probably not the best first impression. First off, the entrance to the trail is exactly 5.4 miles into success pond road on the right. That road is not as bad as everyone writes about, after the 1st quarter mile it calms down. Park on the side of the road and walk in... The trail is a moderate hike overall, The problem is during the wet season in also acts as a small stream. And in November, that stream starts to freeze up. There were many times we had to bushwhack to this side out the trail because we didn't have crampons. The highlight of the hike was going to the "outlook". Some up the most beautiful views I had seen all summer. Mid trail there is a sketchy giant Boulder to climb down and up, again if it had not been icy, would have been fine. And lots of deep muddy water... which we referred to as "the swamps of sadness" if you understand that reference. The final disappointment was not being able to find the plane wreckage at the top. When we got there it was extremely chilly with no markers to find the crash. I wish someone could give more directions on here? Then it was back down and my daughter and I spent a lot of time on all fours trying not to slide down the ice like a polar bear. I also cut my chin open and was bleeding like a stuck pig after trying to clear the trail of fallen limbs from the storm. Despite it all, I can still see why this is an amazingly beautiful hike. I can't wait to revisit it during the summer months in my future.

Super important- the distance of this hike is not 5.2 miles. Whether or not you see the crash site, to the summit and back will take you roughly 7 miles. Like the other comments, this trail isn’t awesome when it’s wet. With the roots, the foot bridges, slick rocks - if it has rained over the last few days or even collected humidity through the course of the day, footing can be challenging. I fell multiple times on roots, sheer rock faces and the wooden foot bridges. When we got to the summit, we were advised by a local man that the crash site required some navigating and was not well marked. There was limited visibility due to heavy cloud cover, and we were already much later in the day due to a. The wet footing taking a bit longer to navigate and b. Anticipating a shorter hike (weird, cuz alltrails is usually more accurate)- rather than chance being in the woods after dark which we weren’t prepared for, we turned around without visiting the crash. Worth it to hike again to see, but will know what to prepare for next time.

this one was a difficult one because you gain elevation very quickly but it was beautiful and the hike also features an off trail plane crash site from the 1950s very awesome to see that too. beautiful views as well

Great hike today. Almost no mosquitos. After about the 0.5 mile mark, the trail gets very steep. Stick with it for the next 1.5 miles and then the trail will flatten out for the rest of the hike to the peak. The bushwhack trail at the top to the plane crash site was definitely worth taking and made for one of the most unique hikes I’ve ever done.

A great hike with lots of character. Steady ups, downs and flat, great views, very well maintained. I followed the map, but ended with 6.7 miles out and back, which included the Outlook Loop side trail. Could be a great loop or overnight, as it is only 2 miles to Carlo Col shelter where the trail connects with the AT, and 3.4 to Gentian Pond.

This was a great hike! Trail is in great shape, though a little muddy in places! Lots of bog bridges to keep your feet clean! the Lookout and Summit views were awesome, could have stayed for a hour if not for bugs! Found the old plane crash site after a bit, lots of false hurd pathes that die out after a while. Great day with amazing views!!!

Epic adventure style hike. The trail leading to the Outlook can be slippery, but overall conditions were very good. Success is a great alpine zone style peak, with great views. The trail to the 1954 plane crash site branches off the AT, just as you are leaving the alpine zone. The plane is at the blue dot on the screenshot of the map I've added.

Wonderful view at the summit was worth the hike. Definitely expect to get muddy if it has rained recently. We found this hike to be difficult to do with a leashed dog at one spot we had to pass him down some rocks and back up again, good thing he doesn’t weigh that much yet because he’s still young. Definitely bring a suitable vehicle to the trail head parking area, the logging road is quite rough. Would definitely do again to see the crash site now that we know how to get to it thanks to some fellow hikers.

This is a high quality hike- it has a decent rate of ascension (to raise your heart and breathing rate) with a fair amount of slab granite and several challenging rock climbs. The ‘hard’ rating very much applies if it were wet. A wide open top makes for great summit viewing- plenty of space to enjoy without crowding other hikers. The crash site gives perspective how hard it would for rescuers to get to people in need of help.

We had a lot of fun on this trail, although steep at times with lots of rock face. Not a great trip on a wet day so wait a few days for it to dry out a bit. We took the little Outlook loop on the right which led to amazing views, don't do this hike without taking the outlook detour! Ate lunch at the summit then went in search of the DC3 plane which crashed on the mountain in 1954 which killed 2 of its' 7 passengers. We found the plane and took lots of pictures with it. Great hike!!! Highly Recommend!!!
