|This past weekend my wife and Ihiked to Mt. Moosilauke in the Western region of the White Mountains, New Hampshire. Trailheads start at the Dartmouth Outing Club's Ravine Lodge, on Rt 118 about 25 minutes from Lincoln, NH.|
The Dartmouth College Ravine Lodge is an ideal starting point for a variety of hikes leading to Mt. Moosilauke. In summer, parking is freely available near the lodge. In winter, parking is available a mile away back at the Rt 118 entrance, and costs a few dollars.
Starting at the Ridge Trail trailhead, we completed a nine and a half mile loop that included the summit of Mt. Moosilauke. Ridge Trailto Beaver Brook Trail provides a less travelled and very scenic six mile route to the summit. The return trip can be made down Gorge BrookTrail or the Snapper Trail, each about three and a half miles. We completed the firstsix miles infive hours due to the ascent.Returning from the summitback down Carriage Trail and Snapper, the return to Ravine Lodge took just two hours.
Enjoy the photos!
