Comments
Comments: This was such a beautiful hike! So green and wet in the trees (so pretty and peaceful, but I do recommend insect repellent), and then coming up out of the treeline to warm sunshine and absolutely gorgeous 360 views!!! I descended via Carriage Road, and took the short detour up to South Peak summit. In between this very quick jaunt from Moosilauke to South Peak clouds had moved in, but still worth checking out this bonus summit! I continued down Carriage Road to Snapper Trail back to the trail head. I started my hike around 7am, and on my ascent two other groups of two and a doggo came up after me (and passed me). On the way down there were a total of about 15 others on there way up via Carriage Road, and about 6 more when I was walking back to the parking lot. It was a nice, quiet, beautiful morning!
