Difficult all the way up to the hut but the fall views along the way are great places to catch your breath. Gets easier a little after the hut. I'm a fairly novice hiker, took us about 2.5 hours from trail head to top of the Moose and another 2.5 back. Will definitely hike again

The beaver brook trail is about 4 mi to the summit with the first 2 miles being extremely steep, slippery, and rocky (a sign warns you of this at the beginning) while the second half is considerably more moderate. You will be rewarded by the views at summit, they are absolutely incredible. One of my favorite summits!

Extremely steep most of the way up. Would not recommend for inexperienced hikers. Great views along the waterfall at the beginning of the hike.

Awesomely amazing views of cascading waterfalls along the trail. It is very slippery on the way up.

Went up Beaver Brook. Still a lot of snow & ice from 2500. Take spikes. Cascade is beautiful. A very demanding trail.

Completed this with a friend a couple of years ago. Definitely very challenging (there is a board at the beginning of the trail warning about this!) right off the bat, but does get better towards the end. Make sure you're knees are strong enough to descend down this trail, that wasn't easy at all.

The trail to Mt. Moosilauke is about 4 mi. The first half, is really steep, climbing along a brook with waterfalls. On the way back, the descent is arguably harder.
The 2nd half of the trail is much easier.
The last 1/4 mi is above the treeline, windy and freezing cold.

Beaver Brook trail is awesome and arduous. I took this trail up mount moosilauki. Its plenty steep. It has lots of steps and handholds to help on the tough spots. Its a nearly continuos waterfall for 2 miles. It is not for inexperienced hikers. It is well worth every step.

Gorgeous challenging trail, it's actually one of the most difficult spots in the Appalachian trail. I wasn't prepared for how steep and difficult this was so I didn't complete it but am looking forward to going back and doing so in the future.
