Comments: A group of four of us did Moriah on Thursday. Very grateful for the single hiker who broke out the Stony Brook Trail the day before. At the junction of Stony Brook & Carter Moriah Trails, that hiker turned right & the real work started. Deep snow & drifting from the trail junction to the summit of Moriah made for slow going & difficult route finding. The AT blazes when we could see them were at our ankles. Although the trail is broken out, snowshoes are a must because the snow is still unconsolidated. Moriah was my 1,000 (recorded) NH 48 4,000 footer peak & 552/576 on my over 60 GRID. The other three were just along for the fun of it.
