Trail Connections – NH Rte. 25 to NH Rte. 112

Mt. Moosilauke is the first time that northbound thru-hikers will hike above treeline, or the last time they will do so southbound. The most prominent feature on this section is the climb and descent of 4802′ Mt. Moosilauke, the eleventh highest mountain in New England. From the south, this section starts at the NH Rte. 25 crossing just outside the village of Glencliff in the town of Warren. Shortly thereafter, the trail goes by Jeffers Brook Shelter and then follows Long Pond Rd. and High St. for less than half a mile. Reentering the woods, the trail begins its ascent of Moosilauke, passing trailheads for Hurricane Trail and Carriage Rd. Trail both to the east before reaching the summit. At the summit, Gorge Brook Trail comes in from the east as well. Beyond the summit, Benton Trail comes in from the west and then Asquam Ridge Trail from the east. Both Gorge Brook and Asquam Ridge trails lead directly to Ravine Lodge which is operated by Dartmouth Outing Club. The lodge can also be reached by taking Hurricane and Carriage Rd. trails as well. Continuing north past Asquam Ridge Trail, the AT passes by Beaver Brook Shelter and then ends at the crossing of NH Rte. 112 in Kinsman Notch. Lost River Gorge and Caves, a popular tourist attraction, is just to the east of this crossing.
[Please NOTE: The trails in the White Mountains retain their original names on trail signs even when portions of those trails are part of the Appalachian Trail. The AT is often denoted by the AT symbol on those signs and the AT is marked by white blazes. To be consistent, we label any trail that is part of the AT as the AT. However, local signage does not always reflect this. It is advisable to carry a trail guide to avoid any confusion.]
The nearest towns are: Haverhill, west on 25; Warren, east on 25 and south on NH Rte. 118 (connecting the Carriage Rd., Gorge Brook and Asquam Ridge trailheads); Woodstock, north on 118 and east on 112: and Easton, west on 112.
