Looking up the Carriage Trail
Route: Gorge Brook Trail, Snapper Trail, Moosilauke Carriage Road, (Mt. Moosilauke), Moosilauke Carriage Road, Glencliff Trail, Hurricane Trail, Gorge Brook Trail
For the ascent, we took the Snapper Trail up to the Carriage Road, on which there were some decent early fall colors. Morning fog and clouds moved away as we reached the summit, resulting in a nice extended stay in good temperatures.
For the descent, I headed down the Glencliff Trail, then back via the Hurricane Trail. The Glencliff side of this trail was rather grown in (though nice fall colors made up for it). From the height of land down, it was wet, slippery, and muddy. From the Carriage Road to Gorge Brook, it was smooth sailing.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 112 West to Route 118 south/west. Ravine Road will be on the right shortly after the height of land. Go down this dirt road and bear right. Limited parking available on the side of the road. Walk straight ahead past the kiosk, then take the first left, go left again, then go right across the bridge. The Gorge Brook Trail starts on the left thereafter.
