We hiked Glencliff at Mt. Moosilauke yesterday. Great weather. The hike felt hard. Steady elevation from the beginning for about 1.5 miles. There is still plenty elevation but it wasn't as hard after that. Then you hit the rocks and you need to do a lot of big step ups. You should definitely wear hiking boots because there is a lot of roots in some areas and the rocks can be slippery. Also, there are a few parts of the trail that you have to cross over running water but it's not too hard to cross. The views from the top are amazing. Great hike! My legs were jello by the end.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Mt Moosilauke via Glencliff Trail (7/25/25)
Cloudy morning with summits in and out of the clouds. Summit was clear when I arrived, but views to the north and northeast (Franconia Notch and the Pemi areas) were blocked by low clouds filling in Kinsman Notch. Cool temps and light winds.
Steady 3.4 mile climb. Once you get to the junction ~ 2.5 miles, it’s an easy 0.9miles to the summit. I found this hike as moderate...although I struggled to the junction. Great views at the summit as well as South peak
