Awesome trail. The first 3ish miles are along a beautiful river. After that I started to hit snow, but not to the point where I needed micro spikes. Once you get up to the next trailhead intersection, there’s beautiful views every few minutes from there. Summit was amazing!

River crossing difficult with icy rocks and high waters from snow melt. No snow shoes necessary, just spikes as you get up there. Couple false summits, all with good views though. Dog friendly

Nice day for a walk. Trail was pretty packed down the whole way. Wind blown snow on the ridge , made the trail hard to find in spots.

With super packed trail conditions we were able to get a good pace. Slope gets steep as you approach the ridge to pick up the AT. Then it’s more gradual climb and the best part of the trail with awesome views of the Presidentials and the Carter range. Had to pick a tucked in spot for lunch since it was bit windy on the ridge

Trail was great. Used spikes the whole way. Views were spectacular on a mostly sunny windless day. Forgot to pause recording on the two breaks at the top to eat and take photos.

Pretty fun trail, a little bit of blow down in some places but not too bad. Didn't have to use spikes until a little over halfway. Amazing views as you get closer to the summit. Wasn't too hard of a hike in the snow, just took us a long time. Overall, great experience!

Lots of snow melt and recent heavy rain made for a tricky stream crossing and a wet trail overall. We had to bushwhack to find a crossing over the stream and still ended up with damp boots. Didn't see any snow until 2500-3000' so used nanospikes the whole way to the summit where there is a mix of snow, rock and ice. In a few spots could have used microspikes but didn't want to grind them down so just was careful with my foot placement which with the nanospikes worked just as well. Overall nice hike and a little mild for late December. Hoping for more snow later this winter!

Hiked this with my 10 year old son for the 44th of his 48. It was a nice warm day out on the trail. We brought snowshoes and crampons but didn’t use either. The trail was well packed down and not icy. The last few miles on the way down turned very slushy because temps were in the 40s. We only saw one other group of hikers all day. Started out at 8am and back to the car before 2pm. So happy that the sun started to come out at the summit so we had a view for a few minutes! One gray jay hung out with us during our lunch. All in all, a great day on Moriah!

Nature tripsGreat!IcyRockySnow

We started out this trail at 9am with exactly 1 degree. It was FREEZING but the sun was making its way around the mountains. The trail starts out fairly well packed down and we used just spikes (no showshoes) without trouble. The grade is very low and easy starting out which made it tough to get warm but about 30 minutes in we were feeling comfortable (with lots of layers). Once you get up to the wide ride with your first real view the remainder of this hike is SPECTACULAR. That took about 1.5 hours to get to the good part then the last 1.5 to the summit was insane views and sunshine. hardly and wind so quite comfortable. This is #21 for me and the best views to date- you get to see the presi’s the whole second portion of the ascent and the Carters! The summit is awesome and exposed but small. Lots of friendly Grayjays to keep you company while enjoying the 360 views. Do this hike on a clear day!! The descent was very easy since there arent many steep portions of the Stony Brook trail. Snow made it a bit tough but had this been summer it would be a breeze :) 10/10 In total we hiked 6.5 hours with a 30 min break for lunch at the summit.

Beautiful walk along Brook for two miles, then the persistent moderate hike starts. The middle miles have moss covered boulders and is a workout. Killer views of the Presidential’s above the tree line make time go by faster. There are a couple of false summits, but the view at the summit is worth it. Highly recommend just for the views!

First couple of miles were pretty and mellow, but the real fun starts around 3 miles in. Very wet with some mud, ice and snow once you hop onto the AT.

11/29/2020 11.2 miles. Water crossings still manageable. Needed spikes once we reached the Ridge. Amazing views on the cliffs and slabs. 360 degree views on the summit. Great views of Maine and the Northern Presidential ridge. Great day hike
