Beautiful 360 view from the top. My 9yr old first 4000' took Gorge Brook Trail to summit and came down Carriage Rd Trail. Not nearly as Rocky as most Whites trails. Great hike. will definitely do again!

great trail for Backcountry skiing. the beginning portion is slightly flat/downhill but the middle and upper portions were great for skiing down and saving some time. Mt Moosilauke south peak has some great views and is beautiful after fresh snowfall. Tough trek if you're breaking trail but as a moderate skier, this was great for a first time trying something other than the groomed slopes.

This is a great trail. Very gentle slope and much less rocky than most trails in the Whites, though it does have its rocky parts. But what it lacks in difficulty it makes up for in distance. It feels longer than what the maps say.

This trail was clearly a road at one time and the ascent is relatively gentle with switchbacks. Unlike many hiking trails in the Northeast it is relatively free of large rocks and boulders. You can make great time on this trail.
We went in mid-April, so the trail was very muddy in places. Above 3100 ft, there was a lot of ice and snow on the trail, so bring microspikes or crampons. The summit however was free of snow and ice. There are few views until reach the ridge line.
There is no parking at the trailhead. In fact, Breezy Point Rd. is closed to thru-traffic about 1/4 mile from the trailhead. You have to park on the side of the gravel road before the road closure.
There were many people at the summit, but we met no one on the trail until the Snapper Trail junction. So, it seems to be relatively unused. However, the solitude was great. Marking this as one of my favorite trails.

Great hike. Saved this one for the last one to complete the 4,000' list because it is my son's favorite.

Another really fun, ridge style hike. Amazing 360° views from the rocky, barren summit cone. Personal favorite.
