First time doing this south to north as I've done this traverse many times north to south. It's funny how the trail looks so different going the other way. Anyways it's a lovely traverse either way. Long enough to be physically challenging but with moderate elevation gain to not be extreme. And in winter, again the elevation is moderate so as to be challenging without being extreme. Lovely views from South Moat to Middle Moat and again at North Moat. Also the cols between the peaks are verdant and bucolic. But the ridge is dry so bring plenty of water. Last good refill option is Lucy Brook at the base of North Moat.

I actually did this as a loop trail by going up Red Ridge and then over to North Moat and down. Loved it !

Easy hike for the first 2 miles, once past halfway the trail gets very steep and is a difficult climb. The views at the top are great! Hiked with 10 boy scouts aged 10-13, and they all made it with no problem. At a fast pace we made it from the parking lot to the top in 2hours 40 minutes.
