Comments: Rattle River and Kenduskeag trails are part of the AT. The AT route to Mt Moriah is a nice woods walk but it is not as scenic as either Carter-Moriah from Bangor Street nor the Stony Brook approach.
Rattle River shelter was in good condition. Met many AT hikers. I heard the common complaint that there are not enough white blazes in the White Mountains. I did see some of the old red blazes on the Rattle River trail. On the plus side they all enjoyed the White Mountain experience. Great views from the open summit of Mt Moriah only limited by the humidity.
