This is no slouch in the elevation department (4800 and change) and the middle third of this trail is very steep and rocky, something to be mindful of if you embark after a rainy period since much of it will be slippery. That said, the going is tough for awhile with very little in the way of "interim" views. But the summit is a site to behold and one of the most interesting of the Whites. With its loping ascension for the last mile or so and its wildgrass blowing in the wind, one feels as if he in a remote plain of Ireland rather than a NH 4K footer. If you can do it, hit the South Peak (2/10 of a mile long and just before the start of the descent on the main trail--it's a hidden gem.

Wonderful trail. Slow, steady climb up to South Peak and the Carriage Road. Several small streams in the first half of the hike. Amazing 360-degree panorama from the summit of Moosilauke. Bring warmer gear for the summit - with even a little wind, it can be pretty chilly. Today it was just perfect.

Very steep trail and gets flat only for the last 1 mile. Incredible view from the summit, worth every step.
Highly recommend to go well prepared.
