Pretty good hike. Went up Gorge Brook trail and Down Carriage Road. Would definitely recommend this because it gives u great views on the way up and down. It took a bit longer than we thought and we should have started earlier in the day as it was getting dark by the time we got out. It is definitely a moderate hike, and u should expect it to be steep for a good portion up and down. It is dog friendly and our dog had no trouble with it, other than being a little tired. A little disappointed because it was really foggy and we had no view. Good hike for a rainy day other than that.

You need to be ready for the distance other than that not too bad. Mostly small rocks on the trial. Steady climb. Pretty cool at the top.

I loved this trail. Probably my favorite 4,000 so far. It had everything. A little steepness. A little flat. The views were beautiful. Did Gorge Brook up and Carriage trail to Snapper down. So much fun. Lots of people passing me but that’s okay! So great. Loved it.

Gorge brook & the snapper are well maintained trails throughout and offered an enjoyable hike. Most steep sections are quickly balanced with flat stretches and the summit offers some great views. Bridges are sketchy, but held up to a 200lb hiker. We hiked in on a rainy day and had no trouble. We were able to finish the loop in just over 4 hours traveling at a moderate pace.

Fairly moderate trail with some steep inclines. We enjoyed the dense tree growth towards the top. Different hike, but a good work out. Beautiful views of the lakes.

Beautiful! Steep, but so much fun. went with our 6 year old.

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.

great, relatively short hike, with awesome view of mt. Washington at the overlook halfway up, and even better views facing south at the cliffs at the end. definitely worth it. :)

My favorite 48-4000 footer so far!! This hike was easier than expected which was nice. Well maintained trail, good footing, and a lot of rock steps. The first few miles the trail follows a river and you cross it a few times on bridges. The bridges could be redone they are a bit sketchy, but they do the job. The summit of the mountain is gorgeous! Highly recommended. The only bad part of this hike was the parking. We had to park almost a mile away from the trail head due to many cars for the Ravine Lodge.

Spent five hours on this loop two days ago with drizzle. The trail was wet and the summit was foggy and windy and chilly. But we were surprise to met a Dartmouth College student at the summit as an “Alpine Steward”. She was sitting in the foundation of a burned away hotel and answered some of our questions. I admired her spirit of protecting the fragile alpine vege on top of the mountain and had to hike all the way up to meet different hiker and educated them. Thumbs up for her! Then from her I knew that the snapper trail and carriage trail were wider in 1920-1940, so people can drive jeeps to the summit! Amazing facts! Of course, the way down was much easier than way up. Also loved all kinds of mushroom beside the Carriage Trail. Enjoyed the brooks below 3300 feet. Anyway, this is a memorable hiking, especially feel the real “rain forest”.

loved this trail! Definitely the right level of difficulty for me. Need to try this peak on a more clear day for the amazing view

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 hike is difficult/strenuous. We started at Glen Ellis Falls, crossed the river, and immediately were met with a vertical climb. After getting to the ski lift area, the hike is up and down and up and down. Not flat between peaks. Be prepared to work. I'd suggest taking an alternate route to get down if you can plan right (19 mile falls trail past the huts w/car spot at the bottom or bicycle spot for example). Heading back to the car across the same 5 peaks was crummy. Beautiful views, met a lot of wonderful AT hikers, but a challenging hike. Plan 8 to 9 hours.

Great hike for a rainy day! There weren’t any spots too wet or slippery even in just my sneakers. I just wish I had listened to my gut and taken the Gorge Brooke trail down; the Carriage Rd to Snapper trail was pretty boring. I’m planning to go back next month with my daughter on a clear day to check out the view. Definitely doable for young kids and dogs.

did this with my 7 yr and my 69yr old mother. I am not even close to fit and it took us 2 hours to summit (with a 30min break for lunch and pictures) and about another hour to get to the south cliffs and back. GO TO THE SOUTH CLIFFS! It is the best views of the hike. took us under an hour to come down. It is quite steep so poles would have been good.

Beautiful and moderately easy hike to the summit of Moosilauke. We went up Gorge Brooke and then down Carriage Road to Snapper Trail. Incredible views at the summit and a few openings on the way up and down. Would definitely do this hike again.

Fun family trip with just the right mix of fun and challenge. Some steep and rocky parts but nothing too tough. I saw people of all ages - from young families with parents carrying babies in packs, to teens and seniors. Nice brook running up the side of the trail at some parts. Nice view st the summit. Can be a bit busy - not the trail you want if you prefer solitude. Well marked. Done with a 10 and 12 yr old, and 4 month old puppy. Nice canopy of trees to shine away the elements.

It’s one of my personal favorites but probably because it’s a regular for me. I prefer snowshoeing up it as the view at the summit is not clear without trees if you are not 6 feet tall or taller during the spring/summer, but Pikes Peak has a gorgeous view on one side. It’s a great training mountain for working on longer steep mountains as it has a continuous and moderately steep incline almost the whole way.

shit was WACK. May wig was GONE. That aint for fuckin walkin. Ya'll need to CLIMB THIS BICH. Do not recommend unless y'all hate breathing/tryna catch some relaxing time with your baby daddy. BYEEEEE

was a nice hike up today. under the canopy of the trees, air temp/humidity not bad for our group of 5 to make it in about an hour. the kids did fine, though one thought it was more steep than she expected. a great day

A pleasant hike. Previous reviews are correct, rocky terrain early on, and great views of the lakes near the summit. Recent rains made the early trail section muddy and buggy, but not enough to be a consideration.

8/6 Monday 90 degrees, summit was absolutely beautiful! Took Gorge brook trail up and carriage down. Enjoyed the evergreen smell most of the way to summit

Took the trail behind the visitor center to the left. Hiked up 1.6 miles expecting to reach the top. At the end of the 1.6 miles there was another Mt Williard sign for .5 or .6 miles. With sunset coming I did not have the time for the extra leg. This website either needs better directions to the trailhead or to update the hike the 4.4 miles.

My 5.5 yo and 8.5 yo and I hiked this together. Gorge Brook up was difficult for those little legs, but with lots of pit stops for water and snacks, they made it up in under 4 hours. When we got to the summit my little one exclaimed "This is the Best. Hike. Ever! Thank you mom for taking us on it!!" Worth it. Back down Carriage and Snapper took them about 2 hours while singing every disney song they knew. Best. Day. Ever.

Great hike! The section between the two falls is steep, but very manageable with good hiking shoes and poles. The view from the top is worth the effort. It opens up to see the highway far below. The red blazes are visible on the trees and rocks, just keep looking ahead for the next blaze.

Wonderful hike! Beautiful landscape and great summit! Nearing the summit reminded me of Scotland with rolling fog and green everywhere, above tree line.

Moderately steep. Very isolated trail. No views at all if you don’t continue to the ledges / summit.

Definitely a family friendly hike on a well marked, gently sloping trail. Easy for even young children or seniors to climb. Beautiful views of the notch from the top.

Did this trail with my scouts who had not been back country backpacking before. Had a great time. It was fairly smooth for the youngest to handle. There are active bears! We had one approach our camp 4 times in one night, 1st night. We went up the Franconia Falls Trail and had a great afternoon playing in the water on the 2nd day. Just let the scouts nap since they didn’t get much sleep the night before. Beautiful area.
