Start/End: Moosilauke Ravine Lodge
Elevation Gain/Loss: 2579′
After our very active Saturday, we took it a bit slower today. We were awake by 7am, fed and packed up by 8am, and hiking by 8:45am. We were in the first 8-10 cars parked at the lodge, and enjoyed having access to the bathrooms in the basement of the lodge on our way past. We ascended via Gorge Brook Trail which is quite gentle and miandering, with only a few steeper sections. The trail wasn’t too muddy, considering how muddy it can be. Toby was able to keep a methodical pace on the ascent and a solid pace on the descent, after a half-hour snack break at the summit enjoying the last of the season’s warmth and sunshine. All in all, a wonderful close to a great weekend!
